According to Britain's Telegraph.co.uk, British Airways is set to offer limited in-flight mobile phone service on its business class-only flights between London and JFK in New York. Passengers will be limited to using only text messaging and internet data when the service launches this autumn, but a British Airways spokesperson said that BA will listen to feedback from its customers and will consider adding voice call support as well at a later date.
Last year Emirates became the first airline to offer in-flight cell phone service. Since then, Australia's Qantas and Ireland's Ryanair both announced plans to offer some form of in-flight cell phone service.
