"Good News" for all cell-phone addicts on AA

Figures an airline with the letters AA in their IATA code would do this to us:

How is letting pax talk on their phones "until the aircraft door is shut" different from current policy? I haven't flown AA in years, but I thought that was standard operating policy on UA.

If they said you could talk until takeoff clearance or at least until push back, that would be an improvement. But I doubt that would coincide with their goal to get even gazilliaon-mile-quadruple-platinum-flys-more-than-the-pilot passengers to attentively listen to the saftey lecture.

On the other hand, the cell-phone usage after landing makes a lot of sense and seems like an improvement.

Two quick points . . .

Number one: this thread has nothing to do with mileage accrual so MilesBuzz is the wrong forum.

Number two: there is already a very lengthy thread in the AA forum on the exact same subject:

Moderators, please close this thread.
