Mobile Boarding Passes and More from Delta's First iPhone App
As if you already don't have enough airline apps on your iPhone especially since American and British Airways have just put theirs out there, the world's largest airline is joining the fray with an app of their own. That's it; it's Delta and the app, simple named "Fly Delta," incorporates all the things we love about travel apps, like easy flight check-in, mobile boarding passes and flight tracking.
Delta's new appavailable for free now over at iTunesmay not have the cute Sudoku add-on game that American's app does, but it will allow you to check airport and weather information as well as mark your parking location with a Google Maps feature.
As we've said before, mobile boarding passes are god's gift to modern air travel and we're happy that so many airlines are beginning to see the light. Sure, there are the occasional hiccups with them (like if your flight doesn't appear on your frequent flyer account and you have to mail your boarding pass to prove you flew it), but as more passengers flash their phones at the gate agent versus a flimsy sheet of paper, these small problems will have to be ironed out. Having the world's currently largest airline onboard helps.
