iPads are being trialled by Delta Airlines as a means of keeping staff connected while in the air.
Apple iPads seem to be everywhere at the moment and one leading airline is using them as a means of keeping their pilots up to date.
Delta Airlines, which offers flights to Thailand, has adopted the new technology following American Airlines’ successful trial. The operator started issuing its pilots with the tablet computers back in 2010.
Despite being a controversial move at the time, the technology appears to have proved its mettle after receiving backing from the US Federal Aviation Administration.
Delta Airlines has even experimented with loaning the devices to customers for in-flight entertainment.
Meanwhile, British Airways is reportedly testing iPads as a means of boosting customer service.
Some 100 cabin crew members have been given the technology, which is used to store passenger information.
