Continental Air Relaxes Cell Phone Usage Rules

Continental Air Relaxes Cell Phone Usage Rules

Quote:
HOUSTON (Dow Jones)--Continental Airlines Inc. will soon allow customers to communicate via their cellphones sooner after an aircraft lands at its intended destination.

In a press release Monday, the air carrier said that effective Monday, cell phone usage will be permitted after landing, after approval from flight attendants.
Great news. I think the ban during taxiing on the outbound is so pax won't be distracted from the safety announcements.

Two U.S. airlines give passengers more phone time

Two U.S. airlines give passengers more phone time

Quote:
American Airlines (NYSE:AMR - News) and Continental Airlines (NYSE:CAL - News) rolled out new polices on cell phone use that allow passengers a few extra minutes to make their calls. From Tuesday, passengers on those carriers can make calls, or use two-way pagers, just after their plane lands, instead of waiting for it to arrive at the gate.
