OH NO! The EU said today it is going to authorise plane passengers to phone, text or email when they’re 30,000 feet up from the surface of the planet.
The first services will start later this year, and the EU wants the prices of phone calls to be kept low.
But can you imagine the nightmare? The only good thing about long haul frights now is that you have hours and hours without being disturbed by shocking emails and phone calls from Planet Earth.
Apparently, Lufthansa has realised this, and won’t introduce services. Instead, it will re-introduce broadband access, which it stopped in 2006. That way, we guess, you can always say your connection wasn’t working and you couldn’t grab your emails. ♦
