Clearly, they are having bandwidth issues on some flights. I find it incredibly slow now that the rest of the world is on it. Its obviously a supply and demand thing.

I just commented on TOBB about how (as a leisure traveler) in-flight wifi is too expensive for me to consider purchasing, and now they increase the prices even more!

At this rate, in-flight wifi is becoming a premium service used by those on expense accounts, just like in-flight phones were.

Free promo code for gogo

Tried gogo for the first time this past week, pretty zippy during my LAS/JFK flight. Anyway, got email with free promo code valid until September 30th.

Anyone on American Airlines that wants it, send me pm. I'll reply to first 10 pm and whoever flies first will get a freebie....

What are they doing on smartphones? Have they hiked their prices there as well?

These aren't the prices I'm seeing:

Are they charging that a massive surcharge to last minute purchasers.

advance purchase pricing hasn't changed YET, but it might. The new pricing is really only for onboard purchases and only on certain routes.
