T-Mobile wifi service + DL

I am planning to switch to cheap a more expensive Magenta Plus plan on TMobile from my current cheaper plan. The Magenta plus plan allows free wifi on GoGo enabled flights. I will be flying LAX - JFK - BOM (DL flights) and return via CDG (on AF). Any experience on the wifi service?

Lol, I was expecting a very different thread based on the title.

It will be fine on the way there, will not work on the way back.

If DL is now offering wife service, I can understand FAs being unhappy about the new expectation, especially in coach seats.

No. The T-mobile free wifi on Dl deal is only available on DL metal. OP is flying back on AF.

Side note if you happen to fly AA or UA. The Tmobile benefit does not work on UA at all due to their custom login portal. On AA, it only works on Gogo flights which is a smaller portion of the fleet - it seems like mostly regional (Eagle) flights these days.

I think it worked on AS last year as well, but I can't remember for sure. I have no experience on DL.

Does the T-Mobile deal get the stream pass or browse pass speeds? There's a significant difference IMO. The stream pass is normally pretty solid. I've used Netflix and Amazon Video on my laptop and the connection was steady the whole time.

It works on any airline that uses Gogo. Not sure if that includes AF.

It definitely worked on AS on Gogo flights.

IME, it seems to be only the browse pass. Tried to stream Sunday Night Football on Yahoo Sports app and was hit with constant buffering.

AF does not have Gogo. Only Delta, Alaska, and American have the Tmobile Gogo plan.
