Airlines Already Allowing Gate to Gate Mobile DevicesPosted: November 26, 2013
If you’re getting away for Thanksgiving, and looking forward to using your smartphone, tablet, or GoogleGlass in airplane mode during take off or landing on a flight, here’s the latest on the airlines that are allowing it. According to forbes.com, you should be good to go on: Delta, JetBlue, American, United, Alaska, US Airways, Southwest, and Virgin America.
As for the calling while in flight, a large petition against it is on the White House website. The Association of Flight Attendants is ‘firmly opposed’ to calling, and a Marketwatch survey finds that 83% of us are opposed to calling on planes. If you are one of the 17% who are ok with it…picture yourself between a crying baby (which can’t help it), and a person shouting at someone over their phone to be heard above the engine noise. Still for it?
