MOST WHO FLY OPPOSE CELL PHONES ON FLIGHTS

It seems most Americans have a serious "hang-up" about people using their cell phones on airplanes. A new Associated Press-Gfk poll finds that 48 percent oppose letting cell phones be used for voice calls while airborne - while just 19 percent support it. Another 30 percent are neutral. Among those who fly more than once a year - the numbers are even stronger: 59 percent against allowing calls on planes. And for those who've taken four or more flights per year, the opposition rate is a staggering 78 percent. Federal regulators are thinking about lifting a decades-old ban on making phone calls on planes. But many fliers fear their fellow passengers will subject them to long-winded conversations that would be impossible to avoid or tune out at 35,000 feet - at least legally.
