With the FCC pondering whether to allow in-flight cell calls, at least one major airline is already laying down the law. As Zach Honig of Engadget reports:
In a company-wide memo sent to 80,000 Delta employees this morning, CEO Richard Anderson put his foot down on the issue of in-flight passenger calls. His definitive statement, “Delta will not allow cellular calls or internet-based voice communications onboard Delta or Delta Connection flights,” will apply regardless of updated regulations from the FCC.
Don’t be surprised if the other major airlines quickly follow Delta’s lead.
