Union-busting airline Ryanair will shortly be allowing passengers to make mobile phone calls from its planes, at a cost of £3 a minute.
"I have no patience with the Luddite approach that says people don't want to use their mobile phones in-flight," [said Ryanair duce Michael O'Leary]. "You don't take a flight to contemplate your life in silence. Our services are not cathedral-like sanctuaries. Anyone who looks like sleeping, we wake them up to sell them things".
"I'm on the plane", commented an unnamed passenger.
