A cookie dough brand co-founder has a hot tip for fellow travelers: You can connect your Apple AirPods to Delta’s seat-back TV screen using Bluetooth technology when flying on the airline’s new Airbus A321neo.

Delta’s A321neo — which began accepting commercial fliers in May 2022 — boasts slick leather recliners, wide privacy dividers between seats, and 13-inch high-definition touchscreen monitors in first class.

TikToker Elise Brulotte was mesmerized by the in-flight entertainment on a Wednesday trip from Seattle to Honolulu.

“FINALLY delta’s new plane allows you to watch movies with your AirPods,” Brulotte, who co-founded Hot Take cookie dough with her sister, wrote in text over her TikTok.

“ABOUT TIME as someone who never bought over the ear headphones im freaking out. game changer,” she emphasized in the caption of her video, which has taken off with more than 520,000 TikTok views.

The Post reached out to Brulotte and Delta for comment.

As of November, Delta has 35 A321neos in service, with 155 purchase commitments for the aircraft through 2027.

The 194-seat airplane features 20 domestic first-class seats, 42 Comfort+ seats, and 132 main cabin seats.

The in-flight entertainment system is said to be loaded with more than 500 movies and 100 TV series.

For its part, Apple launched AirPods — its wireless Bluetooth earbuds — in 2016.
