AirPods on planes? I took a teams call on jetblue - incoming video was great - using AirPods. That said, no one on the call could really hear me. Is there some kind of interference with the jet engine noise?

A plane is my one final bastion of quiet and freedom. Please don’t ruin it by setting a bad example so clients start expecting this!

I’m surprised you thought it was okay to take a work call on an airplane. I get that work can be busy, things can feel critical, but it’s also hard to see the forest from the trees.

Next time you have the urge to talk on the phone on a plane, just look out the window and think about how important you really are.

If you’re replying to me, it was actually a group reunion I really wanted to join and not a work call. Unfortunately I didn’t have another flight option. Again, if any crew had asked me not to, I would have complied. And if any other pax were disturbed, I wouldn’t have spoken (and I had headphones on, of course).

PM 1 is incredibly right.

But to answer your question, it’s because plane wifi caps (or straight up eliminates) upstream bandwidth

That is very true, they cut off your upload bandwidth very low hence the poor audio. Also for the benefit of others don't use video on your calls unless absolutely necessary. You might also expose unwanted information that way as there's no real privacy sitting in a plane.

I’ve done a group Zoom video call for 45 minutes on a major US airline with no issues (with me speaking a bunch too). And without a mask on! A couple of flight attendants brought me drinks while I was on the call and don’t seem to care at all. Use common sense, though. I was in the bulkhead row of an almost completely empty first class cabin and no one else could hear me. If you might disturb people around you, just listen without speaking and put your comments in the chat (I’ve done that too).

That’s the real point of the FAA rules. They come out of a public comment period where the majority of responses said they don’t want to be disturbed by people having calls, not because of technical issues or risk.

Ironically, the restriction ends up being rather elitist, as you’re free to make calls using the satellite phone at your seat, but high prices limit those m to people able to spend a lot. (Back in the seatback Airfone days, Verizon customers could make AirPhone calls for 10 cents/minute. I made a lot of onboard calls, mostly because I was young and it seemed novel.)

Most comments here are wrong!

Using VOIP protocol on a plane to call/video is NOT illegal. Most flights provide Internet services! The old cellphones were removed because nobody wanted to pay $5 bucks a minute to call mama!

It might annoy the heck out of the other sardines in the can but that’s all about it.
