Virgin Atlantic Allows Passengers to Use Mobile Phones on Flights

Virgin Atlantic is the very first British airline to allow passengers to use their mobile phones during their flight.  This will allow passengers to make and receive calls and text messages and to use the internet, via GPRS, which is available on Virgin's new Airbus A330 aircraft that flies from London to New York.  Once the airline's Boeing 747s are finished with their £50 million refurbishment, the service will also be available on those aircraft.

By the end of 2012, the airline plans to have 20 aircraft that can provide the mobile phone service for mobile devices.  In addition, the Airbus A330 is also undergoing a refurbishment to the tune of £100 million, which includes a total redesign of the upper class cabin.  The new mobile phone system is targeted at the business travellers and will be available in all cabins on the aircraft.  The only exceptions are take-off and landing and within 250 miles of US airspace, during which time mobile phones may not be used.

The above article is a summary.  Please see the source article at Google News.
