Airline Cellphone Ban


Now that safety is not the constraint, why is there still a ban on in-flight Cell phone use? This would be easily solved using a barrier to create a separate quiet section. The barrier could be adjustible so that depending on the number of people requesting the quiet section, the seats could still fill to capacity.

Look to the quiet car on Amtrak trains as a model for success.

  1. >It not a technical issue. We’ll try, but this won’t work. Check the overall polls and business related polls. Overall its about 9/1 against and these aren’t Luddites.Good luck with your agenda, but come May when it goes into effect you’ll see overall travel drop and all kinds of social disruption before its adapted as you suggest into a “talking cabin” but this reduce the flexibility of the loading. Imagine a a talking cabin with 30 seats departing 30% full.Sure bet the carriers will really go along with that.Good luck
