phone calls but if the airlines think they can can make enough money off of this, they might go ahead with the plan anyway. >> reporter: even if the fcc approves the change it wouldn't take effect immediately. there will be a public comment period that could take up to a year. for now enjoy the peace and quiet. karen traverse, abc news, washington. >> i'm in the anti-camp on that one. people talking on their phones on planes? no thank you. that's it for me. what is the weather zone? >> make sure you make a phone call while i'm doing the weather. >> please, focus on one thing at a time. >> it's looking much calmer and looks like a nice looking weekend out there, except for the fact we still have some winds up in the north bay and that is a biggie. the national weather service issued a red flag warning for parts of marin, sonoma and napa through 5:00. the wind gusts some of them have still been in excess of 50 miles an hour, but the rest of the bay is quiet, and take a look at this, from mt. tam, not only is this beautiful, but the winds
