How to use device holder

On flights with personal device entertainment, we have device holders in front of each seat you can use to hold your phone or tablet for hands-free viewing.

  1. On the back of the seat in front of you, look above the tray table latch for the lever switch. Gently pull the lever and a small tray will drop down.
  2. Place your device into the holder by continuing to lift the lever at the top of the holder.
  3. Use the lever to adjust the holder to the size of your device, making sure it's snug and secure and won't slip out.
  4. Remember to adhere to airline safety guidelines, including stowing away devices during takeoff and landing.
