​​​​​Yes, you can work around it with a wifi repeater. I have used a USB-powered one that is also a wired to wireless router for hotels or other situations with cables, so it just runs off the USB power in the aircraft (or a powerbank if you have to). Although there are ways to spot this sort of thing by analysing the traffic flows and I'm sure the operators will get upset if you share out your connection to many people to deny them per-user revenues so don't do that. I've only done this to connect, say, my laptop and phone at the same time for different purposes.
My new phone (Black Friday deal from France) seems to have a wifi bridge - so in theory that should allow me to connect my laptop and phone. Not planning on sharing it around the cabin haha

I am sure on my most recent AA flight we were able to switch devices - maybe that was their Panasonic offering. Also able to switch on Emirates.
