Was offered the grand sum of $25 credit for my trouble.
That's not true. That plane doesn't have 2Ku installed yet. However even without the installation of actual ATG or satellite WiFi yet, because entertainment options are stored on a hard drive in the plane, you're still able to stream movies/TV shows through the Alaska_WiFi network (hence why the network was available)
