How Modern PDA Phones Change the Way People Fly
A few years ago, people who book for flights had to call their agents constantly to confirm the date and the time of their departure. It was time consuming and stressful. The worst part is when an individual arrives at the airport only to find out that there has been a delay, and their flight has been rescheduled. It was enough to drive a person crazy.
Then mobile phones came in vogue. Wow! Because it is mobile, a traveller can call his agent while on the cab on the way to the airport! There is no need to stop at payphones any more. Today, the phones are much more powerful with features, which years before, everyone had thought impossible. Like many things, air travel has benefited from their new capabilities.
Nowadays, because of PDAs, all information a person needs about his flight is within his reach. He can check his flight schedules on his own without having to call anyone. He can also find out flight delays in advance, which is good because having the knowledge early on gives him a chance to find other flights or make other arrangements. If there are no flight delays, he can check the traffic situation on the road to the airport, giving him and the cab driver a chance to find another route to avoid being stuck on traffic. He can also check the weather, and find out whether or not it is a good time to fly.
Unlike before, travellers today do not have to depend on other people whenever they need to take a plane ride. For even with their small sizes, PDAs are tools of self empowerment.
