How much do Americans lose in productivity by not being able to use electronic devices during flights. As Keith Laing of The Hill reports, a new study has a startling estimate:

The Federal Aviation Administration’s (FAA) ban on the use of electronic devices during flights is costing the U.S. 105 million hours of productivity, according to a recent study.

The findings, from the DePaul University Chaddick Institute for Metropolitan Development, come as the FAA is nearing a decision on relaxing its rules prohibiting the use of electronic devices during take-offs and landings of airplanes.
