Delta Rolling Out iPhone 12 to Over 19,000 Flight Attendants

In partnership with AT&T and Apple, U.S. airline Delta will equip every one of its over 19,000 flight attendants with an iPhone 12 to "enhance the travel experience for all passengers," it was announced today.

With an iPhone 12 in their possession, AT&T said Delta flight attendants will be able to use augmented reality to more accurately assess in-cabin inventory, to receive more immersive training for critical tasks, and more. Delta will continue to work with AT&T and Apple to come up with additional use cases to improve in-cabin service.

Delta has equipped flight attendants and pilots with iPhones and iPads in the past. Apple has partnerships with several airlines, including American Airlines, which offers Apple TV+ as a free in-flight streaming option.

Nice to see Delta has recovered from the pandemic shutdown and has lots of extra money to spend on tech that doesn't really have a purpose yet.

Alaska Airlines' flight attendants have had iPhones for almost 5 years; they use them to process in-flight payments, view seatmaps and monitor their flight schedules. Alaska's pilots use iPads on the flight deck and the gate agents now use iPads for their primary duties as well. While Alaska doesn't have the size of Delta, they're a major carrier in the bay area and the largest in the Seattle tech region.
