More than 19,000 Delta Air Line flight attendants are now using new Windows Phone 8 handheld devices and a Microsoft Dynamics for Retail mobile point-of sale solution that includes Avanade's Connect Store offering to handle on-board purchasing as part of Delta's efforts to improve the customer experience.

The device, a Nokia Lumia 820, is another investment in technology that Delta has made to benefit its customers as well as its employees - on the ground and at 30,000 feet, company officials said.
