Fasten your seatbelts and no mobiles please "LONDON - Overhead 'no smoking' signs will be replaced by 'no mobiles' messages on some planes next year when technology is introduced to make it safe for passengers to use mobile phones mid-flight.
Airlines are seeking ways to police potentially annoying on-board phone chat via symbols of a mobile phone crossed out, forcing passengers to switch off during take-off and designated 'night' periods.
The company developing the satellite technology for Airbus planes also said cabin crew would be able to remotely switch off phones or disable their voice function, allowing travelers to just use text messaging and email during quiet times."
