Emirates in-flight mobile calls
Emirates will become the first airline allowing mobile phone calls to be made during flights, through technology from Aeromobile, the airline said in statement. The service is expected to start on one of Emirates' Boeing 777 planes in January 2007. Call charges will be "comparable to international tariffs", according to the airline. Cabin crew will be able to switch the system into text only mode at night, to reduce disturbance.
