Delta Airlines Dumps Microsoft Surface, Phones For Apple IPad And IPhone For Flight Crews

MacDailyNews Take: Smirk.

Welcome back to the land of the cognizant, Delta.

When we last covered Delta’s abject stupidity, we wrote:

If Delta is willing to go cheap on tablets for their flight crews, where else are they willing to go cheap?

If desperate Microsoft didn’t simply dump their flop into Delta cockpits for free, they probably

paid Delta to take them. There is simply no other reason for Delta to consign their flight crews to years of having to try to use a failed product, a flop of epic proportions. All other competent airlines already use iPads for their EFBs. Even Delta did before this stupid, shortsighted about-face.

Delta management screwed the pooch with aplomb. Talk about a crash and burn! The idiot at Delta who signed off on this deal should be fired. Delta Airlines now just looks cheap and stupid.

Buh-bye, Delta. Unless you wise up, we will never, ever fly your crap outfit again. Hope your sellout was worth it.

Hello, NFL? You’re next!
