Starting October 1st, Delta Air Lines will be the first U.S. global carrier to offer FREE mobile messaging in-flight! This means that you’ll be able to stay connected with friends, family, colleagues, and clients on the ground and exchange real-time messages via iMessage, WhatsApp and Facebook Messenger.
“Looks like my flight is arriving ahead of schedule. Should be ready for pickup 15 minutes early.”
Note that free messaging will be available on all Gogo-enabled Delta flights, including all aircraft with two or more cabins. Customers will be able to access free messaging through Delta’s Wi-Fi portal page, but messaging will be for text use only and will not support the transfer of photo or video files.
