Delta will test free in-flight Wi-Fi this month theverge.com/2019/5/9/18563….
The first of “several phases” of testing will start on May 13th and last for two weeks. Customers on the test flights will be notified by email or on Delta’s mobile app.
Delta calls the tests the “first step toward realizing its vision” of offering free, in-flight Wi-Fi, though it admits there will likely be “several more” phases before any actual rollout happens. Currently, JetBlue is the only US airline that offers free Wi-Fi.
While it hasn’t named the specific routes it will run the test on, Delta says short, medium, and long-haul routes are included. Customers who have tickets on the test flights will be notified ahead of time either by email or via the company’s mobile app. — Sean O'Kane/@verge
