A group of tweeps had a rather robust chat about in-flight cell phone usage on Twitter this morning, and it reminded me that I should post the following video. This is what passengers on board British Airways' all-business Airbus A318 flights from London City airport to New York JFK watch before using their mobiles in-flight.
While BA continues to mull offering in-flight voice, that particular functionality hasn't been switched on yet. Airbus/SITA joint venture OnAir provides the mobile connectivity solution to BA, and recently worked with the carrier to launch the world's first in-flight mobile portal, dubbed Club Mobile.
All very civilized this. Scroll down for related links.
