The FAA is getting closer to relaxing its rules for reading devices during takeoff and landing. But, the new rules will not include cell phones.
An agency official says the FAA is under increasing pressure to allow people to use reading devices on planes, or provide a solid scientific explanation.

Adding to the FAA’s confusing policy, iPads are being used to replace flight manuals by pilot and flight attendants.
