Should airlines have the right to forbid cell phone use on portions of a flight?

We're talking about full cell phone usage, not airplane mode.

Yes

No

In my opinion they have the right to forbid anything they like - it's their plane.

Nicely put. I was going to say something very similar to this. It's their plane. You don't have to fly on it. Well done.

Side: Yes

Can they ban women?

Not in most countries - I don't know about the US. but in Denmark there is a law forbidding discrimination against gender, race, nationality, sexuality and religion.

If I really needed to rephrase my argument, I'd say they can ban and allow anything as long as it is legal in their own country.

They are their own private company. They can regulate what they want. Jut like Walmart demands you to wear a clothes.

And thank god that Wally-world does demand people wear clothes. I've been near vomiting seeing Wally-world customers dressed, I might get a prolapsed esophagus if I saw them naked.

@Atrag It may not have any KNOWN problems but why risk it? If it works well already they may as well keep it. I know its hard for most humans but you can go with out your phone for a few hours.

they have the right to forbid what they like. but they do allow airplane mode during most part of the flight. and we should be thankful for at least that. they require you to not use the cell when they're landing or taking off, because the usage does cause static disturbances with the ground control. and landing and taking off are the integral parts of flight. the rules and regulations are for your own safety. you should follow them when you're asked to do so.

No, it has been shown that there is no risk in having mobile phones transmitting during any portion of the flight.

Side: No
