Delta CEO Ed Bastian made the big announcement on "CBS This Morning" on Wednesday.

Free messaging will be available on all Gogo-enabled Delta flights, including all aircraft with two or more cabins.

Delta says the service will make it the airline with the most aircraft offering free messaging, as well as the airline bringing the service to the most customers. When flying I want some me time, but sometimes, it's also nice to just chat with some friends and now that can be done for free.

Delta flights will be another place you can stay connected for free. The airline is about to offer free in-flight messaging. The service will allow passengers to use iMessage, WhatsApp and Facebook Messenger on Wi-Fi-enabled planes without paying additional fees typically associated with in-flight internet. To access the feature, a passenger will have to log into Delta's in-flight wifi portal powered by Gogo.

American: Wi-Fi plans offered from 2-hour periods to monthly passes.

Passengers will be allowed to send text and emojis but not photos or videos. Airlines are looking to lure customers by providing perks like free messaging.

Delta Airlines has a plan that'll totally change the US flying experience. The enhancement is part of Delta's multi-billion dollar investment in the customer experience.

Earlier this week, Netflix said it will offer its low-broadband mobile technology to airline carriers in early 2018.
