Plane Text

Quantas announced this week that they are going to allow passengers to send sms during internal flights in Australia, according to 160 Characters, among others. Well, at least they’ll test it on one plane for 12 months.

This is a smart move.

Firstly, as you’re not going to be sitting next to some load mouthed Ozzie shouting at his phone “Yes Sheila, I’m on¬†a plane” as they won’t make voice services available.

Secondly, if the myth that mobile phones do somehow cause planes to crash does prove to be correct, the effects are going to be somewhat limited. Not much compensation if you’re flying on it, but don’t worry, I’m sure it’ll be fine.

Note to self. Avoid internal Quantas flights to Oz for the next year.
