Re: my point of view Texts, sure. Agree, even though I don't do it much...
Wouldn't want cell phones in 1st class either... I'd expect that to be even more quiet.
I disagree, however, that it's anything like a bus or metro - you're in the sky
Plenty of people have conversations on planes, amongst themselves, usually at a respectably quiet level. There is generally no restriction on speech unless there's somebody saying some obviously stupid/evil things...
As for avoiding confrontation - good point on that, overall it does seem more like a rather silly thing to make a law for. Seems it'd be better accepted if it were simply an FAA regulation... not quite a law, just a general rule.
