It seems that the No Smoking signs on planes are about to become as obsolete as actually smoking on them. It’s hard to believe now that only ten years ago (or so) smoking on most planes was absolutely normal.
But now, “No Mobile” signs are going to replace these signs, as airlines around the world allow mobile usage during flights using¬†special satellite systems, at a cost of about $2.50 a minute. The first to start will be Air France, followed by the UK’s BMI.
So that’s another thing for your kids to marvel at, along with the facts that mobile phones were once the size of large bricks, could only be used to make voice calls and the fact that you thought ringtones would never take off.
