Delta sent out an email to their SkyMiles members reminding them of their new WiFi option for mobile phones for as low as $1.95 per flight.
This is a great option if you have a smartphone such as an iPhone and are looking to send some iMessages inflight without having to spend a bunch on WiFi.
With an in-flight Wi-Fi Mobile Pass available for as low as $1.95, it’s even easier to stay connected in the clouds. Send and receive mobile messages via apps like Apple iMessage, Blackberry Messenger, WhatsApp, Google Hangouts and Facebook Messenger. Or, you can email and browse the web — all from your smartphone. Purchase a Wi-Fi Mobile Pass once above 10,000 feet to start surfing.
This is similar to Southwest’s option which allows passengers to Send/Receive iMessages In-Flight For Only $2, which they launched last month.
Delta’s new offering doesn’t specify if the service will allow only for messaging apps, or if you get access to the full internet as well, so if anyone has tried this, please feel free to comment below.
Have you taken advantage of this option before or do you prefer to buy the WiFi for your laptop?
