Though Apple’s latest iOS 4 application FaceTime still doesn’t work over 3G, it works great on an airplane’s in-flight WiFi as demonstrated by a reader of TUAW. This means quite possibly, that in the future should you need to make a call while you’re on a plane, you won’t need to worry about picking up heavy costs just because you wanted to make a quick call back home for a few minutes – that is if in-flight WiFi is relatively affordable…

Here’s the story behind the video

Loyal TUAW reader Bill G. was kind enough to face chat with us this evening. What made this especially fun was that he was in flight over Arkansas at the time. On the way to Texas via American Airlines service, Bill was able to use FaceTime with the plane’s in-flight WiFi service.
