  • Delta will now have free in-flight texting

Well, that's perfectly legal and starting Sunday, you'll be able to do it on Delta flights worldwide.

"Rather than having to count down the hours until landing, Delta customers can continue socialising or working with the tap of a smartphone and enjoy peace of mind at every stage of the flight".

The ability to text will be included on all planes that use GoGo Inflight Internet, which allows passengers to pay for WiFi connectivity. And as for the question of free Wi-Fi?

Delta CEO Ed Bastian announced Wednesday on "CBS This Morning" the airline's plans to offer new free in-flight messaging services. Well, texters worry no more... at least if you travel with Delta Air Lines. 1, customers can use iMessage, WhatsApp, and Facebook Messenger to stay connected with their friends on the ground. Bastian joined Delta in 1998 and took over as chief executive officer in May a year ago.

This includes all aircraft with two or more cabins - and the airline says it will be the first United States transatlantic carrier to offer free access to the instant messaging platform.

Delta Airlines reports this service upgrade is part of the company's multi-billion dollar investment in customer experience.

The feature will also limit what kinds of messages the three apps can send: text only, no pictures or video, so mile-high video sexting is a no-go.
