Which Messaging Services Can You Use

While the offering doesn't include all messaging platforms, Gogo and Delta have the big ones covered:

  • iMessage (Apple iPhone/iPad)
  • WhatsApp
  • Facebook Messenger

The new service will only support text communications, and you will be unable to send or receive picture messages, image files, or use the call function of the application.

Other Wi-Fi Options

This latest move by Delta is a step in the right direction, however, there are other ways you can benefit from free Wi-Fi onboard Aircraft. T-Mobile offers its customers a 1-hour free Gogo Wi-Fi pass, while T-Mobile One can have Gogo connectivity for the duration of the flight.
