    Default Free iPads at NYC Airports


    Delta and airport restaurant operator OTG Management are now offering free iPad access in seating areas at three terminals in two airports in New York City. The iPads are mounted in little mini-kiosks located near terminal restaurants, and are meant to be used for ordering food and drinks. However, the concessionaire says that people don't have to order food to use the iPads.

    The new service is part of a multi-million-dollar upgrade at Delta's gates in New York. Delta passengers at John F. Kennedy International Airport can order from either the French restaurant Croque Madame by Gates 21 and 22 in Terminal 2 or the casual Italian restaurant Bar Brace at Gate 15 in Terminal 3 using one of 135 iPads. Later this year, Delta will open more "dining stations" at LaGuardia International Airport next to Crust, a "Neopolitan-style" [sic] pizzeria, in Terminal D gates 1 and 2. OTG says they won't require that only people who gave made a purchase can use the iPads, but if an order is placed the airline guarantees the food will be received within 10 minutes.

    This is bound to be popular for Delta travelers over the holidays, though iPads smeared with pizza grease may not be attractive to many people. Hopefully, screen cleaner and antibacterial wipes will be available at the "dining stations."

    It's a waste of money if you're poor, but to them buying this many iPads is like a speeding ticket in their budget.

    I can see these things breaking down from people's )kid's mainly) greasy, sticky fingers. They don;t really look to be in any sort of enclosure.

    I'm not so sure about this considering Delta has and is continuing to lay off their workers...

    Why don't they have screen protectors if they're going to be used nonstop by people in restaurants?

    I don't think that's happening for a while seeing as the last ones were almost three years apart.

    Default What's the point?

    this is really cool, would like to see this put in more restaurants
    You don't like the iPad because you don't have one!

    It doesn't matter if they lay people off. Do you think the guys in the top of any business as big is delta aren't bringing in millions a year for themselves? They have the money. The poor guy who got laid off didn't get laid of so the company cold survive. It was for the big guys to continue the lifestyle they have. I work at pit airport, it would be cool to see this here but that probably won't happen

    What a dumb idea.

    Swipe the ipad, then pick up your burger. Enjoy the germs you're eating from the last *** scratcher who used the ipad....

    Idiocy...

    lolwut? It's a pretty cool idea if it's the 3g ones. People would be able to browse their email or whatever as long as the home button was accessible.

    I don't think it's a terrible idea.
