Delta has just updated their Fly Delta iPhone and iPad apps to give passengers the ability to stream movies and TV shows through the app when connected to in-flight Wi-Fi. Streaming is done through the Delta Studio section of the apps.
Delta has updated their Fly Delta app to version 2.6, adding automatic bag tracking. All you have to do is tap the Track My Bags to watch the progress of all bags in your reservation. This update also contains a number of bug fixes.
You can download the update from the App Store now.
Delta Air Lines today finally released a proper iPad application and its iPhone app to Version 2.0, bringing with it a much-needed redesign and, perhaps most important -- the ability to use Passbook for boarding passes. The iPad version of the app also gets a particularly cool "Glass-bottom jet" feature that shows information about what's under your plane as you fly overhead.
Just got an e-mail from Delta, offering up a free MacBook Air if I buy a Delta Private Jets card for the low, low price of $100,000. You know, "perfect for those who prefer to travel light," Delta says. (Probably with a sherpa.)
But you've got to read the fine print, right? Here's where it really gets insulting. You just dropped 100 large on access to private planes. The least Delta could do would be to spring for the good MBA. Instead, you're stuck with 128GB of SSD space. You might be flying like the 1 percent, but you'll computing like a chump.
