Air France To Debut In Flight Phone Usage
Want to be the first to be allowed to use your phone in flight? Then you will want to fly Air France. Breaking Travel News reports that they will take delivery in early 2007 of the first Airbus A318 with the On Air GSM equipment which lets you use your cell phone or BlackBerry during flight. Air France will use the aircraft during a six-month trial of the new service testing it out on short flights within Europe and North Africa. As much as it will be convenient, I think I will mourn the days of the phone-free flight.
