I believe that is a Gogo-provided benefit rather than AA-provided. You may on one of the rare Gogo flights which is why you see it.

Is this available for Sprint users as well now that they've merged to T-Mobile?

got it. It was AA Inflight

AA has changed the login page for both Gogo planes and Viasat planes to aainflight.com. I was on two 737-800s recently that had Viasat wifi, and no luck as a T-Mobile user. It's good to know that a provision to log in with a T-Mobile account still exists on the Gogo-enabled planes.

Interestingly enough, the reason AA has a bunch of Viasat planes is because they had a "shiny new thing" clause in their contract with Gogo that let them break the contract when the faster Viasat technology came along.

Yes this is true. TMO is paying for it.

Above is correct..... t-mobile access only works on gogo equipped aircraft... no luck on viasat.

It would be great if TMobile would get an agreement for the VIasat service, since I haven't seen a Gogo plane in quite awhile

I think the Gogo plane have done a go go go go gone

It depends on what kind of TMobile Account you have
Magenta - 1 hour
Magenta Plus - Unlimited

More Plus benefits
3G vs 2G speed for free international data (unlimited)
20GB of LTE tethered speed vs 3 GB
HD streaming vs SD streaming
2 devices on Netflix vs 1

It's unlimited if you have the $10 PLUS add on with Tmobile (I do). It works on Gogo flights, which I thought at this point was only regional flights and not mainline?

Agree that it would be good if Tmobile would get a deal with Viasat. Gogo is becoming less useful since AA is dropping them, and it never worked on UA anyway due to their customized portal.
