As one commentator pointed out, it's not the call but lound talking. people with earphones cannot hear thenmselves speak so they talk lounder. Please consider your fellow passengers.

I'd say Pfft, ignore the naysayers and give it a try. If you're not speaking much, plus also speak slowly and calmly, noise won't be a big deal. If someone complains, tell them to get back in their box.

Do your business. Get it done.
You seriously had to wait until being on a flight to disturb other passengers and make an hour and a half call? As i mentioned in an earlier comment, most people just exhibit the common decency and respect as part of day to day life while a slim majority are so entitled their only thoughts are themselves.

get a life and charter a business flight!!!! the rest of the passengers want to sleep and rest and not interested in your conversations!
and we all say do yourself a favor and shut the ..up-we paying customers who fork out close to 7K for a business class fare are there to relax and not interested loudmouth loosers like you to ruin our experience! what a nerve you got-you should be kicked out from a flight like that if you do this! Charter a corporate business jet if you want to do business and have this attitude towards fellow passengers!

Having just spent a month travelling in Europe and spending time in a number of lounges, I strongly agree with your comment re conversing with the buds in ears. Agree people do converse with fellow passengers inflight, but generally on lower tones and eventually they tend not to last long, and they turn to the IFE or the paper.
Please let us all know your next flight details so we have a chance of avoiding the experience..

Something I liked in Japan was the rooms in between carriages on the train specifically for making calls. I used this a few times and can talk at whatever volume I like and don't have to worry about disturbing others. It's a shame they don't have a small room for this like the size of a toilet block that could be shared between F/J cabin.
Perhaps, but a previous poster said that he made a 1.5 hour call on a recent flight. That type of call wouldn't leave much time for anyone else to do the same. Further, most business hook-ups are in blocks of an hour, so would limit the availability even more.
limited availability is better than no availability...also that 1.5hr call sounds more like an excuse to show off that they're in business class. Some lounges have private rooms for making calls so it's just mini version of those.

Some airlines don’t allow phone calls, Qatar for example, so you may find Eithad doesn’t either
