It's one thing to get beyond the silly tin-foil hat ban on mobile devices under 10,000 feet. But allowing self-absorbed assholes to actually carry on pointless conversations on their mobile phone in flight?
Puleeze. It's bad enough I have to endure these people in the terminal (Air Law 14)...but all the way across the country? We need to get in front of this insanity now...thus:
AIR LAW 17: Any airline that permits in flight mobile phone calls is hereby required to supply any passenger requesting relief from the din with a pair of those really expensive noise-cancelling headphones. No, the REALLY expensive ones.
Hey...it's only right. You don't let people smoke because it irritates fellow passengers. Why should you be allowed to subject those same passengers to the inane coversations of obnoxious seatmates? Oh wait...because a recent survey shows that 1 in 10 were obviously raised by wolves?
And kudos to Delta for already announcing that no way, no how will they allow phone calls on flights, regardless of how sensationally clueless the FCC is.
