Most of the rules of conversation on the ground apply while you are in the air. Here are a few things to keep in mind when using your phone.
- Make sure that your conversation does not disturb to other people.
Voices can be amplified in the space of an airplane, so keep your volume at a reasonable level, especially during night flights.
- In case the line is bad and conversation is inaudible, explain that there's a problem and hang up.
- Monitor the volume of your ringtone; make use of your phones vibrate mode.
