Cell Phone Calls Flying High

Cell Phone Calls Flying High

Quote:
It's a full flight and it's busy. Young passengers pounce on their Game Boys. Business travelers tap away on laptop computers. And passengers are gabbing loudly -- not to each other, but on their cell phones.

Would you want to be on this flight?

AirCell, which sells in-flight communication systems, apparently thinks so. The Louisville, Colorado, company is developing a device that would let passengers use their own cell phones during flight to call anywhere. The company just received a patent and hopes to begin trials on airlines early next year.
