Delta Will Add Free Streaming Entertainment to Nearly All of Its Flights
Maybe they’re trying to ease the stress of flying, or maybe they’re just trying to keep up with the competition, but more airlines are phasing out customer benefits this year. There aren’t many, but we’ll take them, and Delta is the last operator to offer a valuable service: free entertainment.
The airline plans to provide free in-flight streaming entertainment to nearly its entire fleet starting July 1. Passengers will be able to stream TV shows and movies on their devices or on seat back screens. Variants include hundreds of shows and movies and thousands of songs.
The company’s press release states:
“The only thing better than using the world’s largest in-flight amusement park is to provide it at no cost to all of our guests,” said Tim Mapes, senior vice president and director of marketing for Delta. “Our commitment is to provide Delta customers with the industry’s best in-flight service – period.”
Delta is the only U.S. carrier to offer personalized entertainment on demand at every seat on all long haul international flights …
Entertainment options vary by aircraft type and route.
Other airlines have recently added similar benefits as well. United brought back free snacks earlier this year, and American Airlines announced that it was expanding its entertainment offerings. These amenities may not be innovative, but they are something. For more information, see the press release at the link below.
