Delta snubs Apple

Written by Nick Farrell

Pilots get Microsoft Surface 2s

Delta has scrapped a plan to give its pilots iPads in favour of Microsoft’s Surface 2. The airline ran an Electronic Flight Bag pilot program with iPads back in 2011 but scrapped the plan.

Now Delta was going to replace the iPad with Nokia's rumored tablet, but has opted for the Surface 2 instead. The airline has equipped flight attendants with Lumia 820 handsets, which will be used for processing payments and tracking passenger information.

But the issue here was that Delta needed a reliable cockpit device, so the fact that it dumped the iPad for the Surface 2 running RT is probably important.
