In the past when I travelled by the plane, there was no wifi service. And they even asked you to turn off your cellphone. However, today I read a post via the net and it seems that some planes can offer you the wifi service? You just need to turn off your cellphone before it lands 20 minutes ago. I just wonder is it possible? It will be great that you can use wifi when you are in the plane. At least your time will not be boring.

If so,it is a good news.When I was on board a plane ages ago,the stewardess did tell us that we were suppoed to turn off our cellphone.It was dull and dry to travel by the plane then to be honest.

Yes, even until today they also tell us to turn off the cellphones. So I wonder whether these planes are from overseas.

Perhaps the wifi is not in common use on aeroplanes now.I beg your pardon,I want to ask you a question off the mark.If we draw money from our paypal account ,they charge $35 once.You are a senior mylotter so you are sure to know how to draw money from it.

I was also curious about this, now I learned that, like you said, there are specific times when you are allowed to use electronic device and when to shut them off.

I wonder which flights have this service.

Well, most probably all international flights because they take longer travel time. I am not sure about local flights as I haven't been into one for so long now.

yes i also heard about that. using computers and mobile phones that require you to use internet through wifi are allowed inside the plane. but there are still plane companies that are still so strict about using the mobile phones all throughout the flight.

Yes that will be nice. Though when I travelled with plane in March, I was not sure, it was available there. I would be happy and it will make your journey interesting, browsing in the clouds especially when the journey is long.

Yes I took a flight last November and i was able to use my then blackberry on the plane. Except for the restricted times. I also was able to use my netbook. Not all flights have this but some do.

youless, It is true that most of today's commercial airlines do have WiFi services in their planes but not all of them are free of charge. However, I would advise against using your cellphone onboard because the service is actually meant for use with laptops or tablet books. Studies have proven that our cellphones when turned on in airplanes can affect not only the navigational equipment but other digitally controlled equipments as well. Besides, I feel that cellphone's entertainment is limited as compared to some of the state of the art inflight entertainment systems available onboard the airplanes of today.
