You'll no longer hear flight attendants asking you to 'turn off and stow your electronic devices' while on an airplane.
The Federal Aviation Administration says airline passengers will be allowed to use electronic devices throughout a flight. Normally electronics have to be off during takeoff and landing.
Most frequent fliers are excited by the news, but some hopes cell phone calls won't soon be added to the list of allowed activities. According to the FAA cell phone calls will still be prohibited.
Passengers should expect the changes to go into effect by the end of the year.
