Irish airline announces in-flight deal

Irish low-budget airline Ryanair announced a deal that will allow passengers to begin using mobile phones during flights next year. Subject to regulatory approval, Ryanair's passengers would be able to call, text and email using their phones beginning in mid-2007. The rates would be similar to international roaming charges. This could be the beginning of a lucrative business for operators, that is until the European Commission sticks its fingers in it.
