It appears we could soon have suffer mobile phones on the plane as the communication regular Ofcom has given British aircraft the go ahead to install systems that will allow passengers to make calls and send texts. Whilst I can see this might be good news for business customers who need to make important calls, I can see it could also be very irritating for other passengers. We have all travelled on the train with the passenger from hell who feels the need to call friend after friend, gradually working their way through their entire list of contacts, simply because they can’t sit in silence for 5 minutes. These people don’t seem to realise how irritating they can be, the one consolation is that train journeys are usually rather short. Can you imagine the same situation on a 12 hour flight? I think this decision could lead to more cases of air rage as passengers start to revolt.
