FAA Expands the Use of Portable Electronic Devices in Flight from Take-off to Landing

Good news for Americans. They can now play games, read e-books and watch videos all the time in flight on their personal electronic devices. The U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) expands the use of portable electronic devices in flight. 

FAA said on Thursday, "Passengers will eventually be able to read e-books, play games, and watch videos on their devices during all phases of flight, with very limited exceptions," according to Reuters.

But in-flight mobile use for voice communications is still not allowed. This issue is still under consideration of the Federal Communications Commission. 

FAA immediately provides implementation guidance and time frame details to airlines after the decision.
