You might not be able to escape a co-passenger who won't shut up now that the government is considering allowing passenger to make cellphone calls while flying.
Mere weeks after the FAA relaxed rules to allow the use of personal electronic devices during all phases of flight —a running list of which airlines are allowing gate-to-gate use is here—the FCC is getting in on the cellphone plane party and considering letting passengers talk and text across the whole country.
"…the time is right to review our outdated and restrictive rules," said FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler.
The public reaction was swift and overwhelmingly negative. Some passengers said they would consider changing their airline loyalty if their go-to carrier decided to allow in-flight calls.

"100 percent. I'm a frequent flier on one particular airline but if they made that change I would consider making that change for sure," a passenger at Washington-Dulles told TODAY.
When the TODAY show asked, "Should the FCC allow cellphone calls on planes?" 96 percent of responding viewers using the hashtag #orangeroom said "NO."
