US says no to in-flight mobile use

Aviation authorities in the United States have ruled out the use of mobile phones on planes for the "foreseeable future", reports The Telegraph.

Les Dorr, of the Federal Aviation Authority (FAA), told Telegraph Travel this week that proposals to lift the ban on in-flight mobiles had caused such an outcry they had been dropped.

... Within Europe, airlines planning to allow mobile use include Ryanair, Tap Air Portugal and Air France. Farther afield, Emirates, AirAsia and Kingfisher airlines intend to do likewise."
