Delta int wifi service

Yesterday Delta announced it has a few jets ready to go live with the international GoGo service. Your chance at getting one is not great, but they are working on them and it will take a while to get to all the jets (until the end of 2015 for them all).

Then to the cost. As you can see, for one flight, you are talking almost $25 bucks for a laptop. Ouch! However, you can use your phone i.e. your “mobile device” for just $15 bucks. If you then use this handy dandy little trick you can share your WiFi connection with your laptop and save yourself $10 bucks!

Also keep in mind the 1 monthly traveler pass 30% off link that was supposed to be over at the end of last year is still going strong.

Fly classy (and safe) everyone and say “HI” if you see me on a jet or in a Skyclub today. – René

    Do we know if the Monthly Traveler passes would work on these? If so, then it can be quite good! I have not seen any mention that these would – but would be nice to know…

    Hmm… got to figure out how to make this work on my iPhone as a) your “trick” is Android specific and b) the tether feature isn’t enabled on my phone because my AT&T unlimited data plan doesn’t allow it. Maybe I’ll remember to stop into an Apple store tomorrow and ask there.

  3. Cool beans, I am heading to South Korea next month so I’ll be taking advantage of this. Maybe I’ll post 15 minute updates to Facebook…for all 15 hours of the flight….. 😉
