Quick Q for frequent flyers

Hello! Quick Q! I will be boarding a flight at 2100 on Thursday to Dublin from London. I'm sure I'll be able to listen to the radio during the first half while I'm waiting. My Q is whether I will receive signal during the second half in the sky? Do radio waves travel as fast as an aeroplane? Do they go high enough? UTA

Depends if your aeroplane can go faster than light speed

If it can, you'll miss Dublin by a few million kilometres

Give a man a plane ticket and he’ll fly for a day. Push a man from a plane and he’ll fly for the rest of his life.

No you wont. These short haul flights all you basically get is a seat and some fat bloke sat next to you.

Can you listen to the radio on an airplane?
Yes. Even after mobile phone is in airplane mode one can hear FM radio .

Unless you have a pretty old iPhone or certain Android models you won't have an FM tuner in your phone.
