I have found the last comment on this thread to still be a fairly reliable way to guess which equipment you'll have: How do I Figure Out Which Wifi is on a Flight and the Pricing?
It was definitely gogo, and not viasat.

The pass was purchased in advance on Alaska, $3 cheaper than from the Gogo site ($16 all day pass vs. $19)
