A new Federal Aviation Administration policy allows airline passengers to keep their electronic devices on during flights. Passengers will soon be able to use such devices from take off to landing, but only in the airplane mode. While the new FAA policy allows passengers to use devices during all phases of flight, the ban on the use of cell phones to talk and text will remain in place. The FAA’s decision on this policy has received broad praise from pilots, flight attendants and members of Congress, as well as passengers. The changes are expected to take effect by the end of the year. (Image Credit: Lufthansa/Wunderman)
