Should people be allowed to use their cellphones on a plane?

“I think it’s fine and it should be allowed. I don’t think it can actually interfere with anything.”

Lana Henderson

“Absolutely not. I like it quiet when I’m flying and choose to read or sleep. I don’t want someone talking to everyone they know when they are up in the air.”

Patricia Teasley

“I rarely have an occasion to fly, but I am going to say no. It can interfere with the plane’s instruments.”

Mary Kay Richmond

“Hard to say. I am honestly not sure how it will affect the instruments. Everything can be distracting. I think people can wait a couple of hours without using their phones.”

Brendan Stanco

“Unaccompanied minors who are flying should be allowed to call their parents to let them know they are okay. But if you are an adult, you can wait to call someone.”

Randa Bland
