cell phone use age factorWASHINGTON - The friendly skies are not so affable when it comes to using cell phones on commercial airliners.
Nearly half of U.S. residents say they would oppose allowing cell phone use aboard flights even if there were no issues with the phones interfering with aircraft communications systems, a Department of Transportation survey finds. About four out of 10 residents said cell phone use should definitely or probably be permitted.
But, as any parent of a teenager could have predicted, there is a cell phone generation gap. Among residents aged 65 and older, about 60 percent oppose cell phone use in flight, while less than a third support it.
