It bad enough that you have to listen to people talk to anyone and everyone over the phone when you are eating so I agree he should have been told to turn it off.

Why have it if you cannot use it then?

You can use them but not in a small area like a plane where everyone on the plane will hear you. Just because you own something it does not mean you can use it anywhere you like. A lot of people own guns but they cannot have it or use it on a plane.

BS. BS. BS. Phone calls are allowed on planes ! Last flight I took, the back of the seat in front of me had a freaking phone and a credit card swipe and it was encouraged to be used. Evey row had them.

So its OK for me to phone and carry on a conversation on the phone but not over a WiFi ? That’s BS !

Its all about them not being able to charge you for it. God forbid you get a free long distance phone call out of them.

And sorry everyone but an airplane is not your private space. You are not entitled to privacy on a plane unless you paid for a private room. People have the right to carry on conversations whether its online or with the person sitting next to them.

Do you really want everyone and their mom yammering all flight long on airplanes? That would be a pretty miserable experience IMO. I’m glad that airlines ban video/VoIP voice chatting on flights.
