  • Mobile calls on Emirates flights

    It will be interesting to see how far this spreads to other airlines.

    Dubai-based airline Emirates has become the first commercial airline to allow passengers to make mobile phone calls during flights. Emirates said the first permitted mobile phone call was made on a flight between Dubai and Casablanca.

    The aircraft, an Airbus A340, is fitted with a system which stops mobiles from interfering with a plane's electronics. Emirates plans to extend the system to more aircraft and later this year add BlackBerry and other data services.
    Hmmm - if I can use my Blackberry, then it's all okay then.
