Comments: Cellphones on aircraft

Could be a liability thing. No one really knows if the cell phones might affect some instruments.

It's hard to prove a negative, that under no circumstances of weather, relative positioning, obstructions, and flight regime, a transmitting cell phone could not affect any aviation instruments.

If a plane crashes and eventually someone points the finger at cell phones, the airlines will look a lot better if they can say that they had rules against their use.
