Not answering an email because you were at altitude is no longer a valid excuse
Long gone are the days when stepping onto an aircraft meant you had to switch off all technology for a couple of hours and simply relax for the duration of your flight. Nowadays, business travellers as well as the internet-savvy generation are as connected as ever, with wi-fi as a basic need.
Not answering an email because you were at altitude is no longer a valid excuse, as state-of-the-art technology has made it possible for passengers to switch their phones, laptops and tablets back on after takeoff (that is if you are not currently travelling to countries with an onboard ban for devices of the sort). No matter whether you need to work, study or simply want to keep up to date on your favourite Netflix series, now you can on a large number of flights around the world as wi-fi is offered on all major airlines.
