Delta Airlines introduced a new service onboard — three messengers: iMessage, Facebook Messenger and WhatsApp are now available during the flight with no charge. Delta is the first carrier out of  the «US Big Three» offering such a service. No photos/videos transfer is allowed though, just text and emoji. 

Alaska Airlines made its passengers happy in the beginning of 2017 letting them use the same three messengers during the flight. Another airline offering free Wi-Fi onboard (and messaging services, too) is JetBlue. 

Conversely, one of the most awarded airlines — Emirates — shrank its free Wi-Fi options. While passengers flying first and business class remain online for free, the rest of the airplane is requested to pay for any data exceeding 10Mb limit.
