Text your heart out at 30,000 feet in the airPatti Pietschmann
Well it's not yet free WiFi but Delta taking baby steps toward providing passengers with free text access to people on the ground (friends, relatives, car services, business associates) with free mobile messaging beginning Oct. 1, 2017. You can let everybody know when you'll arrive at your destination, what you ate, about your seat mate or just use up the time.
Delta Air Lines is the first U.S. global carrier* to offer this free service that will enable fliers to stay fully connected with those on the ground and exchange real time messages during flights via iMessage, WhatsApp and Facebook Messenger. The enhancement is part of Delta's multi-billion dollar investment in the customer experience.
