Alaska 843 (SEA - KOA) Satellite WiFi?

Anyone know if this flight has satellite WiFi? If so, is it by viasat? How much is it? Can you buy per flight or do I need to subscribe to their service?

ViaSat is only on Airbus aircraft; it looks like this route is operated by a Boeing 737-900ER. According to https://alaskafleetstatus.weebly.com/ about 40% of the -900ERs have had satellite WiFi installed. SoÖmaybe 🤷

Iím not sure about pricing but you can definitely buy a day pass.

AS has been trying to concentrate these aircraft on "premium transcon" markets. Nor sure if this route qualifies, but your odds are improving as installs continue.
