I think he should have been invited to step outside to make his call.

good! I am so sick of people with cell phones glued to their ears and without any regard for the people around them. Not to mention you aren't suppose to use them during take off or landing.

This guy apparently thinks his calls are so important that the flight can wait... nice to see him paying for that "privilege" he took upon himself.

Maybe during the cavity search they could place it where it belongs.

Similiar incident on a flight I was on a few years back. The flight attendant had to tell him twice. It didn't get as far, as escorting him off--but almost.
These people must be suffering from severe narcissism--thinking their calls were so important as to jeopardize the whole flight.

I really don't understand what is so complicated about following simple rules on a flight!!! That's why I couldn't do that job because after the 2nd time of me having to tell you to turn off yr cell phone I know I'm going to get ghetto fab on yo behind!!
And it's gonna sound like this "HEY HANG UP THE MOTHER$%^&#* PHONE!!!"
