BOCA RUDETON™ AIRPLANE EDITION: This Guy Yammered On His Phone On A Delta Flight Today

Delta wifi phone call

This gentleman spent nearly 15 minutes yammering on his cell phone during flight until flight attendants told him to stop it. He said it’s okay because it’s wifi. They said no, it’s not.

BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — If the man shown above is your employee, you may want to think twice about trusting him with business secrets. The gentleman, flying Delta 2444 from Detroit to Fort Lauderdale this morning, spent nearly 15 minutes on a business call conducted over the plane’s Gogo internet connection.

The animated call could be heard throughout the front half of the plane.

Delta prohibits in flight calls — even over wifi. Gogo also specifically prohibits using the service for in-flight calls.

Two flight attendants ultimately converged on the man who immediately said that he was using wifi so it was okay. The flight attendants told him he was wrong, then shared the airline’s Sky Magazine to reaffirm the rules. Pretty much anyone who has flown in the last five years — and especially the first class cabin which tends to be very frequent fliers — knows that in-flight calls are a big “no no.”

Looks like Delta, which is facing problems after a so-called “emotional support dog” severely injured a passenger by biting his face, also needs to remind passengers that they’re not the only person on a plane. And most importantly, that no one wants to be captively forced to hear your business, or personal issues, at 35,000 feet.
