Should Airlines Allow Passengers To Use Electronic Devices During Their Flight?


There is discussion of whether or not the airlines should allow passengers to use electronics mid-flight.(Source:  In the past, you could not use electronics due to the rare possibility that the signals could interfere with avionics and the airlines also did not want their customers to be annoyed by their noisy seat mates. Now some of the airlines are letting their customers use their electronic devices while they are on the airplane for entertainment.

The airlines that do allow their passengers to use their devices still don’t let them use the devices during take off, landing, or high turbulence. Although if the new guidelines for FAA are passed, you will be able to use them from the second you get on the plane until the second you get off. (Source: Some of the new findings that led to this discussion were that the aircrafts now have a better tolerance for any interference and the invention of newer cell phones that now use less power and send out even weaker signals than before.

They are trying to make these changes for every airline, but until the decision is made, they have left it up to the individual airlines to make the decision of whether or not they will allow it to happen.
