Ryanair latest

” A twenty-minute call could cost as much as your ticket” – Simon Calder, travel editor The Independent.

“….calls to and from commercial transport – ships or aircraft – are uncapped, because the capital and running costs tend to be much higher.

Ryanair’s inflight phone service will be operated by OnAir, a joint-venture communications company owned by Airbus and the airlines’ telecom provider, Sita. OnAir will charge the passenger’s mobile network a wholesale rate of between £2 and £3 per minute. (Of that, less than £1 is expected to go to Ryanair.) “
