Making A Call From 1,000 Feet

The Federal Communications Commission is considering a proposal to lift a ban on the use of cell phones on airlines to give flyers the same access to communication services as they have on the ground.

Brett Larson, host of TechBytes, weighs in on "New Day " Thursday.

Larson addressed if travelers want to be constantly connected.

He says a Quinnipiac University poll released Wednesday indicates most Americans want silence when they fly, with 59% of those questioned saying they don't want the use of cell phones on airplanes and only 30% in favor of lifting the ban. A mute button is also strong option among those polled.
