Fox News reports that there was a heated debate on Thursday between two government agencies regarding in-flight phone calls. The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) voted 3-2 to start a process aimed at removing restrictions related to making calls when flying. The Department of Transpotation (DOT) was not as thrilled with this idea and said there is still plenty of concern from passengers, airlines and Congress about making calls during flight.

Delta Air Lines (DAL) is the only major airline to speak out against in-flight phone calls. American Airlines, United Airlines, and JetBlue Airways (JBLU) will all review the issue and ask for feedback from passengers and crew. An Associated Press-GfK poll from Wednesday showed that 48% of Americans are against the use of cell phones during flight whereas 19% support it and 30% are neutral.
