I’ve been flying American a lot lately, and there’s a loophole I sometimes use to get free Gogo internet. I used it today on my flight back from Albuquerque.
There are a couple of catches:
- You can only get ~30 minutes of internet
- This ONLY works on flights with NO IFE (in-flight entertainment) (as far as I know)
No IFE as in, no screens overhead or in the back of the seat in front of you.
If you’re lucky, you can squeeze out closer to an hour of free internet. But it depends on the flight – there doesn’t seem to be a pattern to it.
Here’s how it works.
