Mobile Phones Should be Allowed on Airplanes

Umm I don’t know. Depending on who you talk to, phones on planes are perfectly fine and the current ban is an overreaction, or they will cause planes to fall from the skies. My concern is not even the safety of the plane, it’s the safety of the pasenger who keeps yapping the entire flight. On a bus or train you eventually get off or can possibly move to a different seat. You could be stuck on a plane for hours in the same seat listening to someone talk about what they are getting at the grocery store. Air rage is coming folks. Do we really want that?

The JetBlue “All You Can Jet” pass SEEMS to be a success. We can never really tell because JetBlue won’t release the exact numbers of flyers who took them up on their offer to fly them wherever JetBlue goes for one set price for one month. Lots of excitement and buzz over the price and the unique opportunity provided by the deal. My question is: Why don’t more airlines do this? You’ll see packages like this to travel around Europe or Asia, but not in North America. If someone knows of a program for the USA/North America please let us know in the comments. If there is one that exists they sure are not doing a good job of letting people know about it.
