Air France's In-Flight Phone Service Isn't As Great As Expected

Air France's In-Flight Phone Service Isn't As Great As Expected

When Air France first announced that they would be rolling out an in-flight telephone service, I couldn't help but ask if you would want to talk on the phone in an airplane. Over seventy percent of you replied with a no because you wouldn't want to disturb anyone sitting near you.

Although many U.S. airlines have steered clear from offering cell phone use in airplanes for this very reason, Air France's in-flight calling service is now in full swing. Like anything else in its trial phase, there are certainly some glitches to iron out. According to The New York Times, a man who called Paris during an Air France flight could barely hear the other person and was told that he sounded like a small robot. The quality of technology that allows passengers to make and receive calls is said to need some improvement, and not only that, but on-board roaming charges cost about $5 a minute!
