Willie Walsh: Time to review use of mobiles on planes
Willie Walsh, the chief executive of International Airlines Group - which was formed following the merger of British Airways and Iberia - says he would like to see airlines revisit the issue of allowing passengers to use mobile telephones on planes.
Speaking to Evan Davis on Radio 4's The Bottom Line, Mr Walsh said the current situation is "frustrating" and while he does not necessarily agree that passengers should be allowed to use phones while in the air - because of the potential annoyance to other passengers - he believes it is time for new clarification regarding the safe use of mobile phones on aircraft.
Willie Walsh appears on The Bottom Line on Thursday, 19 October on BBC Radio 4 at 20:30 BST. You can also hear the programme on the BBC World Service and listen again via the download or watch it on the BBC News Channel.
