MINNEAPOLIS -- Delta Air Lines Inc. will plug its customers into iPads at three new restaurants in Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport Concourse G.
The Atlanta-based airline will offer more than 250 iPads in three new restaurants:
MinniBar -- an upscale sandwich bar with a menu designed by celebrity chef/host Andrew Zimmern.
Mimosa -- a French country eatery and raw bar with Chef Russell Klein of Meritage.
Shoyu -- a modern Japanese restaurant with Tanpopo's Chef Koshiko Yonemura.
New iPads at each seat inside the restaurants will let travelers order meals through a visual menu. Orders are then prepared and delivered to their seat in 15 minutes or less.
Travelers also can log into their Facebook, Twitter and personal e-mail accounts, or check flight status, play games and watch the news through pre-loaded apps such as Bloomberg News. Once the customer is done using each iPad, personal information is securely removed the moment the home button is pressed and automatically deleted after two minutes of idle time, Delta said.
Delta's iPad service is also available at LaGuardia Airport Terminals C and D. Delta plans to have more than 4,500 iPads at three of its hub airports over the next year.
