  1. Hi Rene,

    I would love that swag for my global trotting.

    – from ATL transiting to AUA

    Michael

  2. Amazing prize. I just wanna use my Gogo inflight using my gogo socks. Let me rock in my next trip

  3. I feel this is especially true with it being so early on a Saturday. “Wake me up, before you GoGo!”

    *dances in the airport and the song is stuck in my head for the next three days…*

  4. 10 days before my birthday and this would be pretty awesome.

    Though to be honest, I’m more excited about socks and a beanbag stand than GoGo passes. Blasphemy? Maybe….

  5. There once was a lad from Luxembourg
    whose parents worked at a morgue.
    Lest you think this is sick,
    it’s far worse to pick
    swag winners using Random.org

  6. Flying Delta One to South America in a couple of months this would make the flight even better

  7. Just a few short remain
    before the drawing is done;
    when a lucky reader is named
    I hope I’ll learn I have won!

  8. There once was a sweet Irish lass
    who prayed to win something at Mass.
    She entered three times;
    even tried making rhymes
    to win Rene’s Gogo pass.

  9. Many flights mean endless hours
    sitting on my *!#;
    time would pass much quicker
    with a GoGo inflight pass.

  10. Where did you get all these GoGo passes, anyway, Rene? It’s amazing and your readers appreciate you sharing them.

  11. The temp on some flights makes one swelter
    so to lounges flyers scatter for shelter;
    Rene shares the swag
    he gets to load in his bag
    by focusing his blog posts on Delta.

  12. Before going to Hawaii, I chatted with GoGo. They told me access was available over water via satellite, but I had to purchase an international access, so instead of the $16 rate for 24 hours, I bought an international 24 hour access for $28. I questioned this, but GoGo assured me Hawaii was treated as international. Outbound, everything worked great.

    On the return last night/this morning, an hour after T/O, I tried to connect with a domestic fare accessI had bought months ago…for $16. Guess what, it connected immediately and worked the entire transit over water, and all the way to MSP.

    Anyone else experienced this when flying to/from Hawaii?

  13. Speaker sounds great, I’m Thailand bound and would love the sound. Let’s make it happen.

  14. Tuesday’s – biz and family trip comments. Work gets me flying quite a bit. So, I can keep up some of the DL day to day. Family is back and forth from DTW and Mex often. our local airport just got an AM flight to ATL. So finally some better DL connection options to get back to DTW. My wife has some family travel content on her mini blog. She could co-write tracelling with fam. She always has info on baby changing areas by airport and other escapes w kid.

  15. Wednesday- actual Rookie Wednesday. My rookie mistakes, questions, or best practices. I’ve been following points and travel blogs for 2 years. I’m definitely still a rookie, but really enjoy travel.

  16. Would love the WiFi pass, if nothing else. Just very excited and would love to get more involved.

  17. Question: did I miss the final post of the A350? Caught your first 3, but maybe I missed the final impressions. Have PS booked in Feb, excited.

  18. A word was omitted from one of my earlier posts:
    “Just a few short (hours) remain
    before the drawing is done;
    when a lucky reader is named
    I hope I’ll learn I have won!”
    I wanted my (corny) poem to make sense.

  19. If I win, can I give the swag to my local homeless shelter (they can always use socks along with things like chargers and toy bears) and keep the pass for me?

  20. With what I am calling the MOAMR (Mother Of All Mileage Runs) coming up in January, this GoGo pass would be put to good use.

  21. I still don’t think that GoGo is all that useful, but what the heck, I’ll toss my name in the hat.

  22. I have a feeling that today is going to be a good day. Thanks for all the good info Rene

  23. I’ve learned so much from you over the past 6 months. I’ll hit gold for the first time in Dec. Thanks

  24. And about your blog changes for 2018…Hope you keep some form of Rookie Wednesday. I found them to be both enlightening and/or a reminder of key items.

  25. Thanks for keeping us up on all the new Delta information. You are the best for Delta news.

  26. I’m feeling totally obnoxious leaving all these comments but I want to win! Always end up working on flights and the pass would really help!

  27. This would Gogo great for my upcoming travel plans!
    Thanks, I’ll be here all week, try the veal.

  28. Sure do love the Gogo swag. I hope there will be more types (like a discount code) now that the 25x passes are gone.

  29. anyway, THANKS, rene!

    i’ve learned so much from you over the years… you make a lot of people’s lives a bit better!!!

  30. Wow! Thank you René. Another very generous Saturday!

    Reminder: It’s Schedule Change Saturday. Check you flights. Many itinerary changes for me today. Take advantage of Delta’s Change Rule.

  31. Hoping for a red coat to
    Intercede and offer me 10 K and guaranteed first class to take another flight!!

  32. Good luck on the new direction of the blog. Looking forward to more Mileage Run opportunities.

  33. BTW, schedule changes are great, too, one can often score a longer route for more MQM at a better CPM.

  34. I must really want to win. Also made the mistake of subscribing to the comments…not sure how good my odds are now

  35. Booked for my first D1 to EZE in Dec. Don’t think this would have been possible without this blog.

  36. Good thing (?) I’m not on a flight right now trying to win a Gogo pass when I don’t have Gogo!

  37. Well, if I enter once every half hour or so I’ll still be falling behind those who enter every two minutes but not worth calculated — luck is luck! And thanks are due, René.

  38. If I really need Gogo for a work trip, hopefully the employer will pay for it. It’s for the fun trips where a free pass is so much more useful!

  39. Entering the drawing again, between making PreChecks mix…a seasonal snack shared only with those flying in for the holiday 🙂

  40. Happy Thanksgiving! Appreciate all you do! Greatly appreciate it if we win but if not, you are awesome!

  41. Random.org is a random number picker, what are the odds of my number being picked randomly? Hmmm…

  42. thanks for the opportunity to win something… adding a bit of fun to a grey saturday here where i am!

  43. I think Gogo is pretty good. It’s especially cool to be connected at 35,000 feet over the Pacific.

  44. Pretty cold and cloudy here in the Northeast. Guess it’s time to sit by the fire and type a comment every half hour! Thanks for the opportunity.

  45. just how do you do it? everyone’s always talking about you. “random.org is killing it.”
    “random.org put the random in random.org.”
    “random.org has it going on!”

    what’s your secret?

  46. Enjoying a little Chicago Airport Jazz on the internet radio, entering another try for the Swag Saturday drawing, and looking for a few more good CPM weekend runs to buffer myself for 2019. It’s all good!

  47. Way to go on 6 years! Always good advice and information. Plus the swag thing is a great treat for your readers 🙂

  48. Well, we’re up to 600 entries with 6 hours still to go. I know we’re all (myself included) playing by the same rules but unless there’s some tangible advantage (for Rene) in “bulking up” the number of comments, it seems like some criteria for having one’s post count would make this a more interesting contest. This is a great prize deserving of quality entries rather than simply quantity.

  49. Thank you for approving posts frequently — I love to see the number of comments grow and grow! (Well, NO other comments except mine would be good too :-))

  50. Do you think Delta would give your blog readers free access to your site while onboard? Worth asking…

  51. Kind of want to try one of the new transcon routes, but not via JFK. Any domestic lay flat from DTW?

  52. Is it just me ( I think not ) but should Atlanta’s airport be renamed Gate Change Likely!

  53. @jim f.,

    i kind of agree that the post-as-many-times-as-you-want thing is a bit odd and rewards people who have the time to stay on the computer with the most entries… perhaps making the selection LESS random?

    but rene can do what he wants and i’m gonna keep flirting on here with random.org, just in case.

    (hey, baby, how YOU doin?)

  54. I know the Gogo pass is cool, but I feel there should be more excitement about the Bluetooth speaker

  55. how many people here have flown in 1st on KLM? i’ve been upgraded a few times by ground staff in AMS and, well…

    i want more of those little houses!

  56. personally i love CDG because of it’s retro-mod-spaceage feel. those glass tubes remind me of space mountain in disney world. (honorable mention to the former TWA terminal at JFK, may she rest in peace.)

    CPH is beautiful, with it’s teak floors.

    the main hall of JFK terminal 4 is kind of cool.

    anyone have comments on airports in asia or the middle east? i imagine dubai and singapore would be much nicer than anything in the west.

  57. Admittedly, not related to a Gogo prize pack, but it’ fun to speculate on different mileage run scenarios

  58. I hope Gogo considers the issuance of multi-use passes at a discount. Now it’s a one-time thing or unlimited for a month so I often opt to use neither. A single use seems too expensive and the unlimited doesn’t seem worthwhile if one only flies once or twice a month. (Not to mention they make it so difficult to cancel.)

  59. Yeah, so what about those socks? I can’t see the advertising benefit of those unless you walk around shoeless in a business meeting!

  60. Hmm, just a wrote a comment which didn’t seem to be moderated or posted, so will write again (this intro makes it unique in case the other goes though):

    I hope Gogo considers offering multi-use passes at somewhat of a discount. Right now it’s one time use or all you can consume in a month, so I often opt for neither. A single-use seems overpriced for what I would do with it and a monthly isn’t worth it for the occasional flyer. (Plus they make it difficult to cancel to boot.)

  61. Hmm, twice in a row my comment didn’t get sent for moderation. There must be a filter somewhere sending it to spam (though it was a very non-spammy and I think, useful, observation. And even related to the topic!).

  62. The fires destroyed 2400 homes in Alberta. Which was massive but the Calif wine country lost 8000. Sad.

  63. Flew United last week! Their boarding system is, imo, a joke. Far too complicated, and when we boarded in Houston, the line stretches out a mile, and there are about 5 or 6 lines. People were coming up to me to ask which line to stand in. Not a very good system, and they could learn from Delta, which, while not perfect, is still (Medallion) miles ahead.

  64. Anyone hear that starting in 2019 even full Skyclub members will only be admitted if they have same-day flight on Delta or partners?

  65. A Starbucks coffee and browsing the web sounds like a good way to start the day on my next morning flight

  66. Yes, @Jim and @K, I think the idea is to see how many posts can be made in a day. I think today is headed toward record-breaking territory. I do agree, a limit of one would be fairer but I don’t think that’s the goal. Whatever works for René!

  67. Great to be in the hunt. Delta just “gets it”, as always. Wonder, though, what implications the Delta/Korean Air joint venture will have, if any.

  68. In case anyone is following my story (or an excuse for another post): the 2 posts I made which I thought didn’t go through were, in fact, posted. What can I say?, fine with me.

  69. This is bat cray. I have last minute flights to book for family coming out to Tday dinner…I like Delta, don’t like the prices for desired dates. Perhaps it’s time for them to try Allegiant, that’ll teach ’em a lesson about not wanting to pay the price of waiting until last minute to get booked 🙂

  70. Not so easy to be nasty. Booked them on Delta after all, but they won’t have great seats of times; at this point in the game, it is catch as catch can for all to be on same planes this coming Wednesday.

  71. Now that last minute flights purchases are processing, time to do some more productive things with my time, like entering for the Swag drawing 🙂

  72. “The whole problem with the world is that fools and fanatics are always so certain of themselves, and wiser people so full of doubts.”

  75. “You can avoid reality, but you cannot avoid the consequences of avoiding reality.”
    – Ayn Rand (1905-1982)

  76. “When one person suffers from a delusion it is called insanity; when many people suffer from a delusion it is called religion.”
    – Robert Pirsig (1948-)

  77. “Sex and religion are closer to each other than either might prefer.”
    – Saint Thomas More (1478-1535)

  78. “The greater danger for most of us lies not in setting our aim too high and falling short, but in setting our aim too low, and achieving our mark.”

  79. “I can write better than anybody who can write faster, and I can write faster than anybody who can write better.”
    – A. J. Liebling (1904-1963)

  80. Just realized I don’t have any avgeekery swag…i remember as a kid I got a plastic captains wing from delta. No telling where that ended up.

  81. “People demand freedom of speech to make up for the freedom of thought which they avoid.”
    – Soren Aabye Kierkegaard (1813-1855)
