Travelers rejoice as FAA allows electronic devices during entire flights

Thursday, the FAA announced they will start allowing passengers to use electronic devices during all phases of their flights including takeoff and landing. The policy will allow passengers to use electronic devices gate to gate and is expected to be implemented by airlines before the new year. Passengers will still not be permitted to make phone calls during flights, but they will be able to connect to Wi-Fi, browse the internet, read e-books, play games, and watch videos during all phases of the flight with limited exceptions. This policy development will not change passengers behavior, it will only permit what everyone already does on flights anyways.
