as long as the person with the phone is setting next to you and not me while I'm trying to snooze. I paid for my space and have rights too...Digger
No Cell Phones
Just imagine 100 people talking away oblivious to disturbance the cause when all you want is some peace away from cell.
I think majority feel the same way.
Poll: Should cell phone calls be allowed on planes?
I say no! Have you ever been in a crowded restaurant and could not hear the person next to you? A hundred people with a hundred different conversations. I spent 17 hours in the air when I went to Australia, and the crowd noise and jet noise was incredible. Noise canceling headphones was the only thing that gave me time to rest. If a in flight emergency occurred would the steward or stewardess be able the convey the information you need to save your life? If think there would be those that would refuse to pay attention and keep on blabbing to their phones. I think they would have to re-engineer the cell phone so it would have a Bluetooth voice over ride that could be used to halt phone call and let steward or stewardess convey important information.
ya really every person need to the lowest call rate so today's bring in market a calling cards.calling cards is most use full because calling card is a save our money and also prepaid method of making international call.In cards we can not pay the monthly bills or no detailed statements.
All cards can be used to make local,state and international calls to anywhere in the world.Calling cards have gives the 24 hours a day 7 days a week service provide.
But not in the passenger seats!
Why not let people use their cell in a dedicated area, say just by the toilets, but NEVER in their seat? They would soon get fed up with waiting for space unless their call was life-or-death.
Use in Toilet Area
So while you are chatting in the toilet area, someone (possibly me) is waiting to the toilet. Bad, bad suggestion.
Is someone talking on the phone really all that different...
from the two drunk strangers in the seats next to you talking for an entire flight or a baby screaming?
I hate folks in grocery stores blabbing loudly
I sure don't loud mouth folks sitting close to me for prolonged periods blabbing away. There's already much too much of that in public places.
Yes, but with One simple rule:
All use of the cell phone must be silent. (as in texting)
No verbal communication.
Cell phones on airlines
I agree ,if a person needs to communicate that bad do it silently so you don't bother people trying to enjoy a little snooze or even talking to your next seat passenger without having to holler over some one talking loudly on a phone.
Texting would be fine.
Nothing wrong with non verbal communication, but if your old enough you will remember when phone calls were made from a private booth. There was a good reason for this, namely not disturbing others.
Phone in plane
You can barely hear the person sitting next to you , so what's the problem? I use noise canceling headphones any,so no problem for me. On long flights, I would love to be able to make a couple calls. Just flew and was able to keep my iPad on at all times. Still had a safe flight!
Ah, the self-centered selfish voice of us all
Guess what ankh27, not everybody is as self-centered as you. Most fliers don't curl up with their headphones, noise canceling or not, And given that you are not the President of the United States, I doubt if there is any reason on earth that you need to be in telephone communication while flying.
Unlike riders on a bus or commuter train, once a flier has a seat, she is stuck there no matter how boorish her seatmates may be. I don't expect anybody as self-centered as ahkh27 to really give a darn about anybody sitting near him on a plane, but common decency would dictate that there is simply no need to unleash the self-centered amongst us to make our flights even more miserable by chatting on the phone at any time during a flight.
It's bad enough to have someone on a cell phone next to you in other public places, but in a plane, there is no where to go to escape the inconsiderate. Texting ok, talking out loud...not.
Inconsiderate and ignorant
The use of cell phones in an enclosed space like that of an aircraft is totally inconsiderate of those around. We do not want to listen to you nor try to ignore you and you may well be disturbing an attempt to get some much needed sleep or just some quiet time.
It has not been proven that the use of cell phones on aircraft is either safe or not safe. My belief is that if there was a ban in the first place, there was probably a reason for that ban. Using your device may well have caused those around you to feel anxious and unsafe. That is were you are ignorant. Ignorant of the feelings and rights of others. Grow up and put it away.
It's already bad enough with the idiots talking loud while oblivious to the world at the grocery store and everywhere else. It doesn't need to be allowed in a confined space where we cannot walk away or not hear them doing the same on a plane.
A thousand times NO!
I don't wish to listen to the drunken idiot having an argument with his girlfriend, thank you very much! We can all use a little down time!
talking - no, texting -yes
Texting would be much quieter.
I travel every week and I do not want people that close to me blabbing away for 2+ hours. I use the time on the airplane to unwind and relax (after a meeting) and quietly prepare (before a meeting) and people blabbing away would just be too much. For the love of God, please no cell phone calls on flights!!!
Calls? Absolutely not. Loud calls complete with "CAN YOU HEAR ME? WHAT?" do not belong in public, let alone on a cramped plane.
Go ahead and ban that, but I think it should just be common courtesy to not be on the phone >.<
What about other modes of transport? Like a bus or a train? When I traveled for over 24 hours via Amtrak, not one person made a loud phone call.
Who's going to be the first
I struggle with the incredible proliferation of devices that would be allowed to operate in a very tedious environment. The FCC has the same struggle as a mis-calculation can cause a plane to crash.. Testing of the mirade of devices, under optimum conditions does not take into account a damaged device that is not operating within its described specifications. OOPS. This interaction between devices can create all manner interference products that can not be replicated in a testing environment. NO PHONES IN THE AIR.
I will be that person saying, "Guess where I am! No, no, on a PLANE!yes really!"
No, no no!
It's bad enough to be walking on the street and hearing everyone's conversations, but at least there you can just walk away. On the plane you are trapped, often for many hours. It just isn't necessary for everyone to be connected by voice all the time, unless you are president of the United States. (Somehow, all the Masters of the Universe have survived without it so far.) And the rest of us are entitled to a bit of quiet once in a while. I don't know that a law is needed, but the airlines should certainly continue to forbid it, whether the FAA gives the green light or not.
Please, not another indulgence for the ME generation, whose members are clearly identified by their loud mouths and complete imperceptiveness of anyone near them!
I call it the "The RULES don't apply to me" crowd.
Right to screw up your own life
Let's let the airlines set the rules. If you want fly a no-calls-allowed airline, there will probably be that choice. If you want to make phone calls, that choice may also exist. It should be a supply and demand thing. But regardless, respect for others needs to apply. That is to say, everyone should have the right to screw up their own life but not the lives of others. Blatantly obnoxious passengers should not be allowed to mess up others' lives regardless of their offense.
People no longer have any common sense or sense of courtesy. Enough said.
I will stop flying airlines that allow tis.
A million miler.
NO, don't force me to listen to your conversation.
Travel is hectic enough without being forced to become an unwilling listener to the meaningless prattle of other peoples telephone conversations. I pay for my ticket. Now let me travel as peacefully as possible. We sometimes forget that, many years ago, people used to spend months crossing the country in covered wagons without once talking to the folks back home. They should be able to handle a few hours on the plane without a phone conversation.
Need a special exit.....
....where obnoxious phone users can be pushed out of the plane in mid-flight.
Cell phones on aircraft.
NO. no explanation necessary. NO
