Delta to offer free messaging in-flight

Delta will let customers send and receive free texts while in the air

Delta will let customers send and receive free texts while in the air

Delta offers more than 15,000 flights every day and carries more than 180 million passengers a year. "We want our customers while they're flying to stay connected to their homes, to their friends".

Customers will be able to use iMessage, WhatsApp and Facebook Messenger while in the air on a Gogo-equipped flight. He says the in-flight service begins on Sunday, October 1, 2017.

Still, considering Delta used to price in-flight messaging starting at $2.95 (prices varied depending on your flight), the new service is a nice change, even if it is limited to boring, text-based messaging.

Delta said free messaging will be available on all Gogo-enabled Delta flights, including all aircraft with two or more cabins. In order to text using the specified apps, passengers can go to use the same WiFi portal at airborne.gogoinflight.com. And as for the question of free Wi-Fi? Bastian joined Delta in 1998 and took over as chief executive officer in May previous year.

The airline is about to offer free in-flight messaging.

And even without the same free in-flight Wi-Fi caveat, another big USA carrier - an arch-rival of Delta, no less - already offered free mobile messaging.

The feature will also limit what kinds of messages the three apps can send: text only, no pictures or video, so mile-high video sexting is a no-go.
