FAA to OK Gate-to-Gate Use of Personal Electronic Devices

It’s been under discussion for some time now and now coming down to the wire on implementation: the FAA is almost ready to allow the unrestricted use of personal electronic devices on flights. This unfortunately will not include cellphone usage or Internet connections. Final recommendations are expected to be made sometime in September.

The agency said in a statement on Friday that the deadline has been extended to September, because committee members asked for extra time to finish assessing whether it's safe to lift restrictions.
