She did a who to what now?

HardToDeal Wed 08-Feb-17 20:07:53

Some planes have wifi on board now

bunnylove99 Wed 08-Feb-17 20:08:05

No idea what you mean..

AnchorDownDeepBreath Wed 08-Feb-17 20:08:17

It depends on the plane she's on. Some have wifi.

I'm not sure why this is AIBU though - U about what?

Bailey101 Wed 08-Feb-17 20:08:31

No idea what a kik is, but if it needs internet then a lot of long haul flights have wifi these days.

PigletWasPoohsFriend Wed 08-Feb-17 20:08:52


If you mean can she use Internet on the plane, the answer is yes you can on some.

Yeah most modern flights planes have wifi on them now.

(Kik is an instant messaging service like what's app)

Redglitter Wed 08-Feb-17 20:09:08

Yes it's possible. Not sure what's urgent or unreasonable though

troubledsoul12 Wed 08-Feb-17 20:09:30

I mean she is on her way ( flight ) to bankok from
We use Kik as one o the sources of texting she just send me a message x

I am confused
How can she do that??????

Loads of planes now have wi-fi so it's totally possible. DH deliberately flies certain airlines because wi-fi is his king.

melj1213 Wed 08-Feb-17 20:10:02

Of course it's possible.

I'm assuming Kik is similair to WhatsApp or the like so flights with WiFi mean you can still send them.

PaddlingFuriously Wed 08-Feb-17 20:10:16

Why is this urgent?

You so
So much

Kirstyinnorway Wed 08-Feb-17 20:12:55

Eh? Why are you worried? Of course many planes have wifi these days (as many PP have said) so I don't know why your update still sounded so confused.


Kirstyinnorway Wed 08-Feb-17 20:13:27

X-post, although no idea why you seem so grateful - were you worried the plane had gone down?!

WorraLiberty Wed 08-Feb-17 20:13:52

I hope she doesn't run out of punctuation in mid-air...

BeyondUnderthinking Wed 08-Feb-17 20:15:12

Even if she doesn't have onboard wifi, most planes don't fall out of the sky if someone accidentally leaves their phone on grin

BillyDaveysDaughter Wed 08-Feb-17 20:15:30

Well, that was random.

Bailey101 Wed 08-Feb-17 20:16:45

Why was it so urgent?

picklemepopcorn Wed 08-Feb-17 20:17:42

Did you worry she'd missed her plane?

troubledsoul12 Wed 08-Feb-17 20:17:47

Sorry.... I know I don't make much sense if any at all .
Thank you for all your help

Most flights now offer wifi access at a cost. Your friend could easly have sent a kik
