    Yes. The FAA permits operation of wireless Bluetooth devices at the gate while cabin doors are open, and once again at altitude — when it’s safe to use your other portable devices, it’s safe to use AirPods. While Airplane Mode should be on during your flight to suppress cellular interference, Bluetooth will still function provided it’s turned on in iOS Control Center.
