(WFLX) - Delta Airlines has just announced it will not allow passengers to make voice calls from its planes.

The airline says its frequent fliers believe the calls in the cabin would disrupt the travel experience.

The Federal Communications Commission is thinking about lifting its ban on voice calls on planes; however, the Transportation Department is thinking about instituting a ban of its own.

Meantime, British Airways has become the first airline in Europe to allow passengers to keep phones, tablets and computers turned on throughout their flight.
