SPOTLIGHT: British airline carrier to allow cell phone calls

British airlines company BMI announced that passengers leaving Heathrow airport on its Airbus A320 will be allowed to make calls from their cell phones starting in 2006. The company said if the idea works for its A320, it will eventually install the technology that enables the calls on the rest of its fleet. BMI claims its customers' two biggest concerns are getting through the airport quickly and being able to work while in transit. However, a recent study by the Association of Flight Attendants found nearly two-thirds of passengers would opt to sit in a section that did not allow the calls. Article
