GTE Airfone Cuts Some In-Flight Call Prices: GTE Airfone had launched a $15-a-call rate in May, but it recently cut its price on TWA and USAir shuttle flights to $5 for a one-minute call and to $10 for a two-minute call. Calls three minutes or longer still cost $15. The new rates will continue through December, GTE Airfone said. A company spokeswoman said the cuts came in response to a perception that in-flight phone calls are too expensive. GTE also said it will offer a $24.95 holiday calling card for unlimited Airfone use in December. GTE Airfone of Oak Brook, Ill., is a division of Stamford, Conn.-based GTE Corp. Two other providers of airplane phone service, In-Flight Phone and AT&T Wireless, are reportedly planning to cut some of their prices.
