SPOTLIGHT: Flying cell phones: Tapping beats talking


Passengers have a split opinion when it comes to in-flight cell phone use. A recent worldwide IDC survey found that only 11 percent of 50,000 respondents are in favor of voice cell phone use on planes while 64 percent approved of in-flight use for activities other than talking. The results are in line with a survey released in April by the Association of Flight Attendants/Communications Workers of America and the National Consumers League, which found that air travelers do not want the ban on in-flight cell phone use lifted.
