cell phone calls on a plane?

Apparently it's coming faster than we thought - the airline Emirates is allowing mobile calls at cruising altitudes on its AirBus. Here's the BBC article.

As well you should! I have a BBC news feed on my Google homepage. And the article popped up above my inbox. Gotta love Google and it's targeted content...

sweet! this will make other passengers on airlines even MORE annoying!!! Hurray!!! jk.

on a "fo real" note, its about time. Mythbusters proved that cell phones cause no interference AGES ago. Come on. get with the times, airlines.

No, I think you're right- allowing cell phone usage on an airplane will only increase the annoyance factor.

But it will also increase the convenience factor. You can't have everything in life...
