American Airlines to give their 17,000 flight attendants Samsung's Galaxy Notes

American Airlines to give Galaxy Notes to 17,000 flight attendants

Dallas-based air carrier, American Airlines, are offering their entire crew of 17,000 flight attendants free Samsung Galaxy Notes. American Airlines' roll out will begin later in the year, and will continue into the middle of 2013.



By the middle of next year, the air carrier will put Notes in the hands of each of their 17,000 cabin crew members, where they'll use the phablets to manage fligiht manifests, track premium passenger meal preferences and monitor weather and gate information, all in real-time, on WiFi-equipped flights. The Notes will also sport the flight attendant manual, as well as features such as processing for in-flight meal and drink purchases.


#firstworldproblems would be in the fact that the crew are only getting Notes, and note the Note IIs, but you can't really complain when its free, can you? Another thing is that this news is great, for the crew that will still be employed by American Airlines come mid-2013, as the air carrier announced that 11,000 American mechanics and ground workers would be out of jobs by November.
