Poll finds Americans don't want cell phones on planes
We love our cell phones -- on the ground, not on airplanes. A new poll by the Association of Flight Attendants and the National Consumer League finds Americans overwhelmingly opposed to the use of cell phones on airplanes. Use of cell phones during flights currently is banned but the FCC is taking public comment on whether the ban should be lifted. Pat Friend is president of the Association of Flight Attendants, which opposes the use of cell phones on planes. She says the jury's still out on whether they are safe. She also fears they could be used to coordinate an attack. Friend also says passengers could get annoyed and maybe even become violent because there would be no escape from people who are talking.
