trapped consumer

Why allow customers to use their own already paid for services (assuming the phone can reach that high up) when they can trap you into using theirs for high prices by claiming it's a 'safety issue'.

Fact is, those signals are flying through the air regardless, as phone signals are always traveling around the planet, so that even if no one on the plane had one, it would still be encountering those signals, and as far as I know the plane is not shielded from those signals, or you would not be able to use their own phone service to make a call.

Agreed but those signals may not be as potent when coming from a cell tower at least six miles away (considering cruising altitude is generally ~30,000 feet or more) vs. 100 phones that are on the same plane.
