MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO/AP) — Government safety rules are changing to let airline passengers use most electronic devices from gate-to-gate. The change will let passengers read, work, play games, watch movies and listen to music.
The Federal Aviation Administration’s new rule on using iPads and other electronic devices on planes is getting a thumbs-up from air travel experts. Air travel analyst Terry Trippler says it’s smart customer service.
“I think it will improve customer morale to a great extent — and it won’t cost the airline a penny,” said Trippler.
