If the government allows people to make cell phone calls while on a flight, would you pay extra to sit somewhere where you couldn't hear people on their cell phones?

According to a new poll, more than half say yes. Fifty-three percent of frequent airline travelers asked said they would pay for a seat in a quiet zone if cell phone calls are allowed in-flight.

The FCC is currently weighing whether to lift a ban on in-flight cell phone use.
