(NEWSER) – After story upon story about the FAA's declining resistance to passengers' use of electronic devices, the definitive headline has finally arrived: The FAA says airlines can allow passengers to use devices from gate to gate. The AP reports that the change will apply to planes that meet certain criteria for protecting aircraft systems from electronic interference. Most new airliners are expected to meet the criteria, but changes won't happen immediately. Timing will depend upon the airline.
