    Well that about does it. I never want to fly in my lifetime.

    I've read something similar about Airbus Industries' plan to allow cell phones for flights. What I remember reading is that while it would now be OK'd by the manufacturer, it's still going to be the airline's decision whether or not you can use your cell phone in the air.

    Just think about it: businessmen talking on their cell phones the whole flight, hyper loud teenagers yapping to their friends, making it no longer possible to take a nap because of all the noise. Even if it were like this, I'm sure the airlines would quickly change their minds after seeing how bad it really would be. If airlines know anything about customer needs, they will not allow such chaos.
