Majority of business travellers don't want mobile phone use in-flight

Share

A survey by Barclaycard Business suggests that any introduction of in-flight mobile phone use would be unpopular with the majority of business travellers.

Over 4,000 businesspeople were questioned, and found that six out of ten would not want such technology introduced.

62% of women were against it, compared with 57% of men, with chief executives being more keen on the concept (43%) than company managers (31%).

Flight operators planning to trial mobile phone use include Ryanair, BMI, SAS, and Air France.

  • I hope we never see mobile phone usage on air travel. I would never want to be trapped in a cabin with a load of cell phone addicts chatting my ear off.
