FAA Considering Easing Mobile Device Restrictions

(New York, NY)  --  Airline passengers may soon see relaxed restrictions on the use of mobile devices during flights.  The FAA will take up the issue next week after it receives a recommendation from an advisory group.  Currently, it's required passengers shut off e-readers, tablets and other electronics below ten-thousand feet to prevent interference with plane instruments.  The agency will get the report on Monday, but it will not include recommendations on wider use of cell phones.
