FAA Loosening In-Flight Device Rules

Posted by - 11:39 AM on 10/31/13
New FAA guidelines will soon allow us to use e-books, listen to music, or watch videos on devices in "airplane mode" during take off.
Passengers can use e-book readers, play games and watch videos on devices, and can hold gadgets during both take-off and landing, or else stow them in the seatback pocket. These gadgets need to be in Airplane Mode or have cell service turned off during both landing and taxi/take-off, but you can actually use Wi-Fi during your flight and continue to use Bluetooth accessories connected to your phone.

Fucking finally. I've usually just continued to listen to my headphones but there's been several times when a flight attendant has actually told me to take them off.

I can't tell if you're being sarcastic or not. When a ticket LA to NYC goes for $170 I don't know what there is to complain about.
