EU Allowing In-Flight Cell Phone Usage

European Union officials say that the number of of aircrafts that allow passengers to use their cell phones while in the air will double by next year

Last year the EU allowed the "safe use" of cell phones during flights. Currently there are 27 aircrafts from British Airways, Ryanair, and Portugals' TAP offer a pay-for-service to use phones while in the skies.

The United States still bans the usage of cell phones while in flight.

We already have to put up with listening to crying babies, can you imagine sitting next to someone gabbing away on their cell phone?
