TAKEOFF NO LONGER MEANS TURN OFF
By: Taking Off
Use your tablet, smartphone and e-reader in “airplane mode” throughout your entire trip — from taxi to takeoff to landing — on all 2,400+ mainline Delta flights within the U.S.*
Here are a few things you may want to know about using mobile devices on a Delta flight…
Why is Delta able to make this change when the industry has not allowed this for years?
All Delta aircraft have completed carrier-defined PED tolerance testing to ensure the safe operation of passenger portable electronic devices during all phases of flight.
When can customers begin to use portable electronic devices during taxi, takeoff and landing?
Effective on Nov, 1 2013, all customers traveling on Delta-operated domestic aircraft within the United States may use certain portable electronic devices. Laptops and devices larger than a tablet must be stowed during taxi, takeoff and landing.
Why are customers not able to use a laptop or large portable devices like DVD players on taxi, takeoff and landing?
Generally speaking, any device that is larger than a tablet may pose a hazard due to the physical size and weight of the device and must be stowed during taxi, takeoff and landing.
To celebrate this change, we’re giving away two First Class tickets to anywhere in the continental U.S. For a chance to win, snap your best #Below10kFeet photo on your next flight and submit it once Wi-Fi is enabled.
