New Poll Finds Americans are Opposed to Inflight Cell Phone Calls

A new poll conducted in joint cooperation by The Associated Press and GfK Group, a market research firm, has shown that Americans do not favor the use of a cellphone for calls during flights.  A whopping 48% of respondents said they are opposed to allowing calls during flights, while 19% said they were in favor of it and 30% were neutral on the matter.  The poll comes after last month’s announcement from the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) that they are considering ending the ban on cellphones during flights.

One official from the FCC wrote in a blog post in November that the ban is an outdated rule, but he added that it is ultimately up to the airlines as to whether cell phone use will be allowed on their flights.  Contrary to this view, federal lawmakers are considering passing legislation that will ban cellphones during flights.  Just weeks ago, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) changed its rules and now passengers are allowed to use the majority of electronic equipment during flights as long as they are in airplane mode.
