If gov't backs in-flight calls, will the airlines?
FILE - In this Thursday, Oct. 31, 201 file photo, a passenger checks his cell phone while boarding a flight, in Boston. The Federal Communications Commission might be ready to permit cellphone calls in flight. Old concerns about electronics being a danger to airplane navigation have been debunked. And carriers could make some extra cash charging passengers to call a loved one from 35,000 feet. But that extra money might not be worth the backlash from fliers who view overly-chatty neighbors as another inconvenience to go along with smaller seats and stuffed overhead bins.
