Another Ryanair Rip Off


Low-fare airline Ryanair has equipped 20 of its fleet with an in-flight mobile service. The airline is using OnAir’ssystem to allow passengers to make and receive calls, send and receive text messages and use the Internet facilities on their mobile phones while in flight. At present, the service is only available on the O2 network. Passengers using the service will pay the roaming charges as set by their operator, meaning €0.50 for text messages and between €2.00 and €3.00 per minute to make and receive calls. It’s free to switch on your mobile and receive text messages and thats about as much as passengers will be doing. The cost definitely outweighs the novelty of making calls while in the air.

Michael O’ Leary doesn’t agree. “We expect customer demand for this service to grow rapidly and hope that customers of all UK mobile operators will soon be able to call or text home from 30,000 feet to tell loved ones of yet another on time Ryanair flight.”
