Certainly great news for Nokia coming from US of A. Seems, AT&T has got Delta Air Lines on board for business and has manged to sign a multi-year deal. Under the agreement, AT&T will equip more than 19,000 Delta flight attendants with Nokia Lumia devices.
Under the agreement, AT&T will equip more than 19,000 Delta flight attendants with Nokia Lumia devices powered by Microsoft Dynamics mobile point-of-sale platform on Windows Phone 8, with a Delta-specific customer experience developed by Avanade to operate over Wi-Fi and AT&T’s 4G LTE Network. Avanade will provide Delta with ongoing support, maintenance, and application enhancements for the next three years. This in-flight solution to sell food, goods, and upgraded seats to passengers aligns with Delta’s commitment to continually improve the customer experience.
Seems the first lot of devices to be adopted by Delta Air Lines is Lumia 820, but the attendants will expand to newer Lumia devices under this three-year agreement.
Near real-time credit card validation, which enables passengers to purchase food, drinks, and upgrade to available Economy Comfort seating in-flight. On-board Economy Comfort upgrades will begin on transcontinental and international flights before being offered on flights across Delta's system. -- Faster workflow and ease-of-use by unifying all flight attendants on Nokia Lumia 820 devices. In addition, this agreement will see Delta Air Lines crew expanding to the newest Nokia devices over the next three years. -- Faster transaction times, expected to be significantly improved, will allow flight attendants to conduct more transactions and better tend to passengers' needs.
Thanks Tom for the Tip. Cheers!!
