“Our flight attendants are the finest professionals taking to the skies day in and day out, so when we were looking for outstanding products that meet the Delta standard, Apple and AT&T were top of mind,” said Allison Ausband, S.V.P. – In-Flight Service. “This relationship is a step toward the future of a more connected and human onboard experience.”
Delta plans to use the AR capabilities of the iPhone 12 to assist with:
● Training: With policies frequently shifting due to the pandemic, flight attendant training and information is more critical than ever. With AT&T 5G on the ground and iPhone 12 in-hand, flight attendants will have increasing access to immersive training including videos, photos and AR on the go, just about everywhere.
● Catering: A paper-based process today, flight attendants will soon have up to the minute digital catering inventory and be able to quickly locate items without opening a single door, using the camera on iPhone 12 and augmented reality to visualize where items are stowed.
Delta says the upgrade will make it the first 5G-equipped global airline.
