AIRLINE CUTS COCKPIT CHATTER

Newark, N.J. (SatireWire.com) Continental Airlines, concerned over studies linking car phone use to traffic accidents, today moved to preempt similar incidents in the sky by banning the use of all communications devices in cockpits. According to Continental, an internal study revealed that its flight crews were "continually on the radio," most often with air traffic controllers, and particularly before takeoff and landing when, said a spokesman, "they should be concentrating the most."
