I’m sorry, I can’t hear you over the roar of the engines…

It appears that the first steps have been taken towards people being allowed to use mobile phones on aircraft. In flight.

Good grief, it’s bad enough on other forms of public transport with kids/adults who really should know better blasting music out of the tinny speakers, imagine the cacophony when people are permitted to have phones switched on “in flight”.

I’ve no doubt that actually making calls will be horribly expensive, but it’s the other annoying features of modern phones, combined with that complete lack of respect for other people that is prevalent in society today, that’s what will make flying with mobile phones really unpleasant…
