British Airways Go Mobile Between London and New York


Soon, you will be able to do that as OnAir, the company dedicated to providing in-flight communication, devloped a system which will allow you to use your mobile phone during your flights between London and New York. But sadly it's only available to premier business class which UI am guessing is due to the costs.

British Airways have confirmed they have added such a service on a London to New York flight. Connectivity will be offered by OnAir, a company dedicated to providing in-flight communication, but will only be available to those flying premier business class.

The flight in question is from London City airport aboard one of two special Airbus A318 aircraft flying to New York’s JFK. Interestingly, the service will not include voice calls and will be restricted to data, so you can send SMS, email and browse the Internet, but not chat to your friends or make a business call. British Airways say this decision is due to a ’strong divide in customer’s opinion’ regarding mobile calls on a plane.

Bear in mind, OnAir is not a mobile phone provider which means they can set the prices to whatever they want, but seeing it would cost a lot of money to have 1st class seats, I'm sure business people can afford the rates. :)
