The airlines will never ban cellphones so long as there is an opportunity for them to make more money ["Airlines should still ban cellphones," Letters, Jan. 7].

For now, they just don't know whom to charge: those who want the quiet seat, or those who want the privilege of speaking on their phones during the flight.
