135 Free-To-Use iPads Installed At JFK’s Delta Gates

135 Free-To-Use iPads Installed At JFK’s Delta Gates

If you’re flying on Delta through JFK this holiday season, you’ve now got a new way to wile away the time between flights: Delta has just installed 135 iPads at three of the airport’s gates, including Croque Madame, a French restaurant at Gates 21 and 22 in Terminal 2, and Bar Brace, an Italian restaurant at Gate 15 in Terminal 3.

Although the iPads are meant to encourage commuters to order food from their parent restaurants thanks to the included iPad menu apps, the management company responsible for their installation says that making a purchase is optional, and that the wireless internet connection is completely free.

That’s a swank little perk for flying Delta. Of course, you wouldn’t be caught dead traveling without your iPad anyway, would you?
