Mobile phone use backed on planes

Mobile phone use backed on planes: Passengers could soon be using their mobile phones on planes flying through European airspace. (Via BBC News | Technology | UK Edition.)

Are they also going to add air marshals to stop irate passengers gagging overly talkative mobile users? Airlines agreed to stop on-board smoking for the sake of safety and health, and smoking addicts dealt with it. But the tobacco companies are not as smart as the telecoms. If they had proposed a special on-board smoking fee to be divided between them and the airlines, we'd probably still have on-board smoking. Because it is evident that the extra charges for on-board calls will be nicely divided between the telecoms and the airlines. At the expense of all the passengers who do not suffer from mobile addiction.
