Ryanair Allows In-Flight Mobile Use, No Telephone Boxes Planned

Posted June 17, 2008 by BookingBuddy

Ryanair2 What’s more annoying than always dropping your toast butter-side-down, then have it collecting hair and fluff off the ground, thus rendering it inedible? Well, how about that person on the bus (you know there’s always one) who has their mobile surgically grafted on the side of their head, constantly yammering on in a grating voice about extremely inconsequential matters? (Really, who cares if Auntie Helen’s geraniums are flowering two weeks later this year?)

Well, at least that yammering idiot has been confined to ground-based modes of transport. Until now, that is. Ryanair has just announced it will be trialling the use of mobile phones on about 20 of its planes this summer. And while this may strike some as bad news, if you try and look at it in a positive way, it’ll be like watching a soap opera on the in-flight entertainment system. Except without the images. And without any hair-pulling or face-slapping. And it’ll be the same voice grating on for several seemingly interminable hours.

Alright, so, maybe not much like a soap opera at all. If Ryanair started trialling the use of BB guns on planes, then we’d be talking.

Just a quick update. Ryanair's in-flight mobile phone service has been put “temporarily on hold” following a decision by provider OnAir to terminate the contract.

Only on Ryanair- Still they seem do OK as a budget airline and we all use them from time to time. Just best not to drink before boarding
