Happy talk?

RyanAir has just announced that passengers will soon be able to make mobile calls on all of its flights.

I have mixed feelings about this; It might be very useful to get email into my Blackberry while in the air, or to be able to send one saying that the flight was delayed. But the idea of having to sit next to somebody who’s making a long phone call, in the cramped confines of an economy flight, doesn’t exactly fill me with glee. We need to make sure that, from the beginning, there’s a strong in-flight ettiquette which says that you only make calls from the back of the plane, or something similar.

With a bit of luck, the roaming charges will be sufficiently high that most people on RyanAir flights (like me) won’t be able to afford to make the calls…
