For US, 48% consumers want it to be allowed. Some nations like India and China are 70%+ in favor of inflight phone usage.
Different cultures have different tolerances for public behavior. Not surprised that India/China are in favor. I bet in Japan it would be 99.999 percent against cell phone usage in the plane. I know which I prefer.
