Cell Phone and Electronic Use on Airplanes

The Day has finally arrived!   

In the past few years, I've had some lively discussion with  friends about cell phone and electronic device use on airplanes.  "Will my cell phone really make our airplane crash?"  I believe these devices were prohibited  for a different reason- but perhaps that's the subject of a future post.  Well, I'm happy to say that it appears evolution has finally caught up with technology.  At least as it applies to small electronic device use on airplanes.  I traveled last week and was pleasantly surprised by the new announcements made by the flight attendants which now allows the use of small electronic devices (in the airplane mode) during takeoff and landing.  I quickly pulled my head out from my magazine and opened up the LA Times on my cell phone. I somehow missed the implementation of this....   Busy Busy Busy.  Here's a story if you've been busy and missed it as well.


An appropriate follow-up to my prior post.   Enjoy...

Ever wonder why you can't use your cell phone and other devices on airplanes?
