Airlines—OK To Leave Electronic Device ON?
(13WHAM-TV) - Airlines could allow passengers in the future to leave their electronic devices on during take-off and landing.
The Federal Communications Commission is asking the Federal Aviation Authority to allow tablets, e-readers and portable devices to stay on.
Right now, passengers must turn off their devices during takeoff, even though there's been no proof they interfere with flight services.
The FAA has indicated it will review its policies.
