WINDSOR LOCKS, Conn. (WWLP) - If you've ever taken a flight before, you have heard the flight attendants remind you to "please turn off and stow all electronic devices," but that could be changing a bit.
The Wall Street Journal reports an FAA advisory panel says it's time to relax some of those rules for gadgets, which are hard to regulate because of just how many devices passengers have.
One-third of passengers say that they have accidently left devices on during flights, anyway.
Not everyone would be so happy to see the regulations go, though; one man told 22News that he actually looks forward to 'disconnecting.'
"I work in New York City and this is my commute," Shawn from Putney, Vermont said. "I get enough of that there. I look forward to the times I can unplug. But I'm also addicted."
Passengers probably will still not be allowed to make cell phone calls during flights. A final FAA decision could be expected in the fall.
