Have you ever been in a plane, looked out the window and wondered what you were flying over? I know I have. Nearly every flight I’m on I spend some part of it looking out the window curious about exactly where we are. When we’ve flown with Kora & Logan they always ask a million questions about what’s below asking “What’s that, Mommy?” and “Daddy, where are we now?”
That’s why I was excited recently to learn about the Fly Delta Glass Bottom Jet App for the iPad.
Passengers can use the Interactive Flight Tracker to see exactly where they are and use the Glass Bottom Jet to view photos, landmark information, and social content from their friends. Here’s a video that shows the app in action. The Interactive Flight Tracker and Glass Bottom Jet features can be seen at 1:25:
Isn’t this amazing? I can’t wait for our next trip on Delta to try this out. In fact, I’m so excited about it I will definitely be checking Delta flight prices first when booking our next trip and keep my fingers crossed that they are within our budget. The app is still new so I haven’t heard many reviews about it yet, but will be keeping my eye out to see what others think.
I was also pleased to see that the app is full of many other features including:
- Trip inspiration
- Destination guides
- Airfare specials
- Ability to book flights
- Seat selection
- Manage profile, transactions, & SkyMiles account
- Check in for flights up to 24 hours before departure
- Pay for checked bags
- Get terminal and gate info
- Check flight status
- Purchase trip extras like Wi-Fi and Priority Boarding
- Find out what’s playing on board
- Download the SkyMall magazine and destination related music and movies from iTunes
It seems to be an all encompassing app that attempts to make life for Delta passengers easier and more entertaining. As soon as my next flight on Delta is planned I’ll be using this app to manage it and to have fun while I’m flying. I’ll be sure to come back and let you know my thoughts on the Glass Bottom Jet features and whether it’s as good as it sounds.
What about you? Have you ever wondered about what you are flying over? Would this app sway you towards purchasing airfare from Delta over other airlines?
No products or compensation received. I was intrigued when I heard about this app and simply wanted to share.
