The U.S. Government Looks To Formally Ban In-Flight Phone Calls

8/05/14 8:27 AM EDT
The U.S. government wants to ban passengers from making phone calls in-flight. The Department of Transportation (DOT) said that it is pursuing a formal ban on in-flight calls with a proposed set of rules to be released in December. The Federal Communications Commission, proposed overturning technical rules that keep passengers from making in-flight calls last year. This time around, regulators are focusing on disruptions created by making phone calls during the flight rather than preventing passengers from texting or using their phone for other data use. Airlines are fighting DOT - the carriers want to have the the final say whether passengers can use cell phones during the course of the trip. Some are looking into different ways passengers can still talk on the phone when in-flight with options like phone booths or quiet zones. The Street's Kathryn Mykleseth reports in New York.
