What device do airline passengers use the most to get online? It was close, but the humble tablet is used the most, with 35% of inflight surfers using a slate. This is followed by the laptop at 33% and the smartphone at 32%. Speaking of smartphones, the platform used most by airline passengers going online in the sky is iOS with a 73% share. That leaves 26% using an Android flavored model while .01% are sporting a BlackBerry device and .006 have a Windows Phone in their hand. Separating Apple devices by usage on airplanes, 59% use the Apple iPad, 36% have an Apple iPhone online inflight while 5% are using the Apple iPod.
While Apple does dominate in the sky, Android has picked up some ground (no pun intended). In 2011, iOS had a commanding 96.8% share of online devices with Android far behind at 3.2%. In 2013, Apple still dominates above the clouds with an 84% share compared to 16% for Android.
