New cell phone regulations on planes?
I may have missed where this might have been covered already but if it hasn't...I know we have a number of travel types on here so here's my question.
What will the impact be if the TSA begins allowing passengers to use cell phones to blab all the way across the country? Will it only apply to domestic flights? I don't imagine there is a lot of cell service at 50,000 ft over the Atlantic ocean is there? Will it be left to each airline to set their own rules?
I for one feel its a bad move and will cause at least some problems on flights, how much remains to be seen. I am not above telling some rude boob to tone it down or make a fuss about loud talking on a stupid cell phone. Will the flight attendants have much say about it?
A while back TSA also considered allowing knives back on planes. I remember being able to carry a pocket knife on the plane but I was glad when they backtracked on it this time. They had said that "the pilots are protected" so not to worry! Not to worry?! All it takes is for some loon to wait till the lights go out and reach over the seat in front of him and drive his knife into someones chest! Before all of the "recent unpleasantness" I never worried about such things. Times have changed. NO KNIVES on the plane and for me NO CELL PHONES! What say the members?
