If you fly with Delta, you'll be happy to know that the Fly Delta for BlackBerry 10 app is now available. The app touched down in BlackBerry World on March 18th and I put it to use the very next day, making the trip from YWG to LGA with a short layover in MSP.
The app delivered immediate benefit to me as well. After deboarding the plane and walking into the terminal in MSP, the monitor by the gate did not list the gate number I had to be at to catch my next flight. I whipped my BlackBerry Z10 and fired up the app, and sure enough, the Fly Delta app had the gate number I was looking for - in this case gate D4, and the flight was on time. Panic avoided!
Beyond checking flight status, the Fly Delta app offers a number of features:
- Find, compare and book flights
- Check in for domestic flights and have your eBoarding Pass delivered via text message
- Pay for checked bags
- View the latest flight status and flight schedules
- Access Delta contact numbers and @DeltaAssist Twitter support
Overall it's a smooth running app, and if you own a Z10 and fly with Delta, it's an app you're going to want to have installed and put to use. Be sure to check out the video below for a closer look at it from CrackBerry's James Richardson.
