In flight cell calls, your thoughts?

FCC gets earful about cellphones on planes

I am not in favor of cell calls on flights. You have the option to move away from someone who is telling all their business loudly in public when you are in an open space. Not so, when you are stuck in a flying tube.

    I can't say I fly enough to worry about it either way. I do see why people would not want to be stuck on a flight with several people talking on their phones. The more people talk in an enclosed area, the louder they get. I also see why some are for texting but limited phone calls.
    When I hear terms like "hipster" I think, who told cliques they could leave high school??

    I'm confused about this:

    "Thomas Elsner of Wheaton, Ill., said allowing more mobile networks on flights would drive down Internet costs and provide better service than the current Wi-Fi networks."

    and this:

    "the 1991 ban on cellular service, which was created to avoid jamming ground stations. "

    I thought it was an air traffic safety issue.

    I take gravol & sleep through the majority of the flight, so wouldn't be an issue to me.

    Is it really necessary though? Lots of flights now have wireless, that should be more then enough!

    Cell service on airplanes is the bane of an assistants existence.. that few hour window when the boss COULDN'T contact you was golden, now poof it's gone. And just so you know, a bored executive on a long flight finds ALL KINDS of stupid things that they need to talk to their assistant about/have them do.

    The thought horrifies me.

    This a good way to make flying even more hellish.

    The thought of someone thisclose to me chatting on a cell phone for a flight is really awful.

    It's bad enough that people can't figure out how to share armrests and how not to push their seat all the way back and onto your lap - but doing that WHILE on the phone. No thank you.

    I think it's fine and great to have that option.

    I always thought that the safety issue had more to do with people being distracted, not the signals.

    It was signals, but that has been shown not to be true, hence why calls can now be made.
