Members of Congress don't want to hear you talking on your cellphone the next time they are on a plane. Bills in the House and the Senate would ban cellphone calls during flights. Two months ago, the Federal Aviation Administration began allowing electronic devices to be used during take-offs and landings. That prompted the Federal Communications Commission to consider lifting a ban on telephone conversations. Commissioners are scheduled to vote Thursday on whether to move ahead and begin accepting public comments on the proposal. "It would be really annoying. I think a plane environment should be quiet," said traveler Sandy Zocher. The FCC has said it would be up to individual airlines to decide whether to allow passengers to talk on their phones during flights.Head over to our Facebook page and leave your thoughts on this possible ban here.
