EU backs easy in-flight listening for air passengers

4 years ago49 views

We have all been there.

You are settling into your seat getting ready for take off when an air hostess taps you on the shoulder and tells you to turn your music off.

Well, that annoying pre-flight ritual could become history.

The European Commission on Monday confirmed that portable electronic devices may now also be used in ‘flight mode’ throughout the whole flight, from gate to gate.

Previously these had to be turned off completely during takeoff and landing.

But the final decision will remain with airlines and pilots.
