US to propose ban on in-flight cell phone calls | Ars Technica

The International Air Transport Association, a trade group representing airlines, argues that the decision should be up to individual carriers. Some airlines have already said they would prohibit in-flight calls, but others may want to experiment with “passenger-friendly” ways to allow them, “such as in-flight phone booths or quiet zones,” the Journal report said.

Imagine.  Let the airlines decide how they want to run their businesses, rather than having the government pile on yet another regulation doing it for them.

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.

    I wonder if the phone companies are behind the government action.
