Wait DAL had ATC and JBU is soon too?
JetBlue has toys on the aircraft, mainly Satellite TV, so they were right in their assumption most people would rather watch TV than listen to the pilots' communications, but apparently I wasn't the only one who had asked...I had also written to JetBlue and gotten the same response, that they will soon have the ATC channel on their audio system. There's more aviation enthusiasts than they realized!
None of the Delta flights I've been on recently have had such a feature -- it wasn't mentioned in the magazine either. I also believe it is a United-only feature (and even then, at the pilot's discretion).I have never flown on the Song-branded Delta flights though, so it's possible that they have it on them.In the future, when Internet access is available on flights for a reasonable price (or free), you'll be able to listen to your communications by just tuning into the various feeds on liveatc.net as you fly!
Is anyone still allowing passengers to listen in while in flight? I think United was the last that I knew of that had this. Are there any others left out there?
