In what can be called a very unexpected announcement, Delta has informed their employees that it will be issuing a Surface 2 running Windows 8.1 RT to every pilot over the next two years. The airline did run a “Electronic Flight Bag” program with Apple’s iPads back in 2011, however that plan was scrapped for reasons unknown.

According to WindowsITPro, Delta since planned to run the program using the rumoured Nokia tablet but instead opted for the Surface 2. The decision follows a similar move to equip flight attendants with Lumia 820 handsets, which are to be used for processing payments and tracking passenger information.
