In December 2013 the Federal Communications Commission FCC proposed a rule change that would allow passengers on commercial jet flights to use their cell phones wireless service if the airlines

In December 2013, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) proposed a rule change that would allow passengers on commercial jet flights to use their cell phones (wireless services) if the airlines agreed to permit their customers to do so. Foreign airlines have already been allowing in-flight use of cell phones. However, flight attendants are concerned about safety issues because passengers will not hear announcements when they are engaged in phone conversations. 

 

Those who fly frequently are concerned about the possibility of being seated next to a "loud" cell phone users and the resulting agony of a long flight. Flight attendants fear that passengers, agitated by loud cell phone conversations, will experience air rage that will be difficult to manage. On the other hand, cell phone companies are pleased with the possible expansion of usage. 

 

Still, some experts are concerned about high cell phone usage interfering with plane navigation and com- munication systems. What can flight attendants and passengers do to let their concerns be heard? Can the proposed rule be challenged? How do cell phone companies offer their support?
