Delta Airlines chooses Windows powered Surface 2 tablets for Pilots

In the battleground for Enterprise, Windows and WP further solidifies their fight with Delta Airlines. Previously arming flight attendants with WP8 powered Nokia Lumia 820s, now their pilots are to get Surface 2 tablets for Pilots
Delta believes they’ll save 13M in fuel and other costs by not bringing 38lbs flight bag containing manuals and maps.
The reason for choosing MS? The surface 2 is apparently easier to give pilots separate sections for company and personal use. Furthermore, Delta’s training software also runs on Windows. Delta has already done tests with iPads but has gone with Surface 2.
