Just a few weeks back the FAA expanded the use of portable electronics on flights, meaning that you no longer have to power down during takeoff and landing. What was still up in the air was the use of phones for voice calls however. It's still up to the individual airlines to set the final rules, but one big name won't be allowing voice calls anytime soon.
In a memo to employees, Delta CEO Richard Anderson said "voice calls in the cabin would be a disruption to the travel experience" and went on to say Delta employees "are not in favor of voice calls onboard."
Phone calls during flights would be flat out annoying and cause more bad than good, so we're definitely happy with the route Delta is taking here. You can check out the full statement from the CEO here.
Yay or nay to calls while in-flight? Sound off in the commenst!
