FCC Considers Allowing In-Flight Cell Phone Calls

UNDATED (WIFR) -- Airline passengers could soon be able to make calls from their mobile phones in flight.

The FCC is looking into what is calls an "outdated and restrictive rule" banning calls while planes are in the air. If approved, airlines could pull in more revenue charging for the calls. But some passengers are not happy about the idea of listening to other passengers' conversations in close quarters and the union representing flight attendants has already come out against it.
