Delta will allow passengers to text while in the air
« on: September 27, 2017, 02:34:40 PM »
From MSN:
Delta said Wednesday that customers will be able to send free messages with popular chat platforms while in the air, beginning Oct. 1.

Customers will be able to use iMessage, WhatsApp and Facebook Messenger while in the air on a Gogo-equipped flight. Gogo is a popular Wi-Fi platform aboard airlines but customers won't need to pay for Wi-Fi access in order to send and receive messages.

Delta said users won't be able to send photos and videos, likely because such content could slow down the data network. The airline didn't specifically mention it would support standard text messages — also known as SMS messages — which means customers will need to use one of the aforementioned platforms.
