Delta’s test of free in-flight Wi-Fi may shame other airlines into offering service
Delta’s test of free Wi-Fi means the service is available on around 55 domestic short-, medium- and long-haul flight segments a day.
“Customers are accustomed to having access to free Wi-Fi during nearly every other aspect of their journey, and Delta believes it should be free when flying, too,” said Ekrem Dimbiloglu, Delta’s director of onboard product, in a statement.
Now Delta Air Lines is taking its first steps towards offering free Wi-Fi as well. The Atlanta-based carrier started a two-week pilot test on May 13 that includes free Wi-Fi on around 55 domestic short-, medium- and long-haul flight segments a day.
