For ten bucks a month, Verizon Wireless will let you forward calls from your cellphone directly to your seat while flying, as long as you're traveling on an airline that uses Verizon's Airfone service, that is. There's also a cost per minute of 10 cents, but compared to what it normally costs to make a phone call while aloft ($3.99 for set up, plus $3.99 a minute), this is a huge bargain.
