American Airlines Plans to Equip 17,000 Flight Attendants with Galaxy Notes

American Airlines is already giving in-flight entertainment with Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1s for customers, but now they are looking to upgrade their flight attendants as well. They’ve been testing the program out since spring and AA plans to move forward and get all of their flight attendants the Galaxy Note “tablet” to help out with passenger information and seating.

After testing “many devices” the Galaxy Note was decided upon for giving a lot of screen space and functionality while still only taking up one hand and being able to fit into a pocket. Information on earlier flights, seating arrangements and plane delays will all come up on these Notes and make information easily accessible to attendants and passengers. AA promises “a whole suite of applications” to come down the road to integrate the devices even more.
