Use of Mobile Wireless Devices for Voice Calls on Aircraft
Agency: Department of Transportation (DOT)
The Department of Transportation (DOT or Department) is seeking comment on whether it should adopt a rule to restrict voice communications on passengers´ mobile wireless devices on scheduled flights within, to and from the United States. The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) recently issued a notice of proposed rulemaking that if adopted would, among other things, create a pathway for airlines to permit the use of cell phones or other mobile wireless devices to make or receive calls onboard aircraft. DOT supports the FCC´s proposal to revise its rules in light of the technology available and to expand access to mobile wireless data services on board aircraft; however, under the Department´s aviation consumer protection authority and because of concerns raised, we are seeking comment on whether to ban voice calls on aircraft.
As if flying these days is a pleasurable experience. If travelers be allowed to shout above our heads - phone calls in public are always shouting since one does not see the face on the other side - be ready for more flight rage.
