Just a little reminder and tip.
I rarely pay for in-flight wifi. It’s kinda nice to be uncontactable for a little while. Most domestic flights are ~5 hours max anyhow, and usually shorter.
But I found myself needing to get some work done on a plane this week and made the decision to rely on American’s in-flight wifi from Gogo.
(Typing on a computer in a cramped economy seat is another issue altogether. And I highly recommend one of these for seatmates who can’t stop staring at your screen.)
The all-day pass I bought 5 minutes before boarding my American Airlines flight was $16. But on the plane, they wanted $24. So I saved a tidy $8, a ~33% discount, just for paying in advance.
Note that prices can vary based on the flight. But in general, if you need or want it, it’s better to purchase an all-day pass ahead of time.
And WHERE you buy the pass makes a difference for American or Delta all-day passes.
