Talking The Talk: Airline Business Travelers Cell Phone Survey

You’re all set to dive into the latest best seller on your cross-country flight or complete a proposal due upon landing. But your seat mate pulls out his/her cell phone and starts gabbing away.

“Hey, guess where I’m calling from,” you might hear. Then, it’s hours of “blah-blah-blah” while you’re trying to read, work, relax or watch the movie.

But there’s a silver lining in this cloud over your head. A survey of business travelers worldwide revealed that 61% would rather not hear cell phones on airplanes. And 70% of Europeans, compared to 57% of Americans, were against the use of phone during flights.

Cellphones Stuff.
