Following last week's news that British Airways would be the first major European Airline to implement the new relaxed regulations on electronic device use, we now have a time frame, and it's good news. As of Thursday, December 19 British Airways passengers will be allowed to use their personal devices during takeoff and landing for the first time.

Similar changes have recently been made across the major U.S. airlines after the FAA ruled in favor, and thankfully for European flyers it hasn't taken long to follow suit. Personally speaking, I've got 4 flights lined up with British Airways in the coming months, so I'm definitely pleased to see this.
