Last week I used Gogo Inflight internet on Thanksgiving during our flights to Florida with Air Tran. This definitley helped to pass the time during the trip and I even got to finish a post or two while up in the air!
I just received an e-mail from Gogo offering 30% Off Your First Month.
I don’t really have a need for a monthly Gogo pass but if I did, I think this offer would be an excellent deal.
During my flights last week I used a free Gogo Internet Session pass that I was given at BAcon (Boarding Area Conference) back in May. I purchased an All Day Pass (good on all flights for the day with Air Tran) which would’ve cost $20.95. Thanks to my pass, my cost was $0. (There were also shorter, cheaper options like a 30 minute pass or a pass good only for your current flight.)
While $20.95 might sound steap, I can see justifying the cost of a day pass if it allows you to be productive and get some work done or even if it helps to just pass the time on a flight.
For those that are flying on a consistent basis, a monthly pass makes a lot more sense.
Gogo offers a couple of options for Buy Before You Fly.
- Gogo Unlimited– unlimited monthly internet access on any partner airline for $49.95 per month. With the offer I received, the price drops to $34.97 for the first month, with the regular price kicking in after.
- Traveler Pass– unlimited monthly internet access on your favorite partner airline for $39.95 per month. With my 30% offf offer, the price would be $27.97 for the first month, with the regular price kicking in after.
- Air Canada
