The agency must accept and consider comments from the public for a two-month period. The move is controversial. Delta and Southwest have already said they would not allow passengers to use phones on their flights. Personally, I dont think that in-flight phoning will fly, said Airfarewatchdog President George Hobica. Already, two airlines have said they wont allow it, not because of safety concerns but because in the confined atmosphere of the airplane, with the roar of jet engines, people will be shouting into their phones even more than they unnecessarily do on the ground, and this would make an unpleasant experience even more so, especially during nighttime flights. Hobica notes that adding a quiet space would require giving up seating — and thus, revenue.

“A clear majority of customers who responded to a 2012 survey said they felt the ability to make voice calls onboard would detract from — not enhance — their experience.

Last week, the FCC voted to approve a measure that will open up for public comment a proposal that will lift the technical ban on in-flight cell phone use. However, FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler did say during the meeting that it will ultimately be up to the airlines whether they allow people to talk on their phones during flights.

Besides Delta, Southwest and Virgin America have also said that they aren’t inclined to allow in-flight calls, according to The Wall Street Journal .

Chan Lowe: Cell phones on planes

Delta puts the kibosh on in-flight cell phone calls
Think about it. Do you know of a major cell phone company that does not offer a 30 day no questions ask return policy? Companies like AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile, Sprint and others all offer this type of policy and need to do something with the cell phones they receive back from customers during this time period and legally they are not able to sell these phones as new, so they sell them as a refurbished cell phone. Also, do you have insurance on your phone? If you ever had that Blackberry or Iphone replaced through an insurance program with your cell phone company, the insurance provider needs to do something with the phone. They do not just throw it away. In fact, if you received a replacement phone from your cell phone carrier, I can almost guarantee you that it is a refurbished cell phone .
