Gogo, which provides in-flight internet for several US airlines, has slowly been raising their prices over the past few months. I have a monthly all airline access pass, which up until now has cost $39.95. I found it to be a good value given that I probably spend 40+ hours per month on domestic flights equipped with Wi-Fi.
Up until now their price increases seem to have been focused on those buying Wi-Fi on a per-flight basis as well as new members, though now for the first time that I can remember they seem to be raising prices on existing members, as I just got the following email:
The price of your Gogo service is scheduled to increase from $39.95/month to $44.95/month. Compared to other Gogo passes, the Traveler Pass is still the best value for frequent flyers with a preferred airline.
Your new rate of $44.95/month will be effective with your next billing statement on or after March 15, 2013 No action is required to continue your subscription. Of course, you may cancel your subscription at any time by emailing us at [email protected] or calling (877) 350-0038.
Thank you for your loyalty and your business.

Interestingly Gogo’s website seems to suggest that a new monthly membership would run $49.95, so I guess I’m still getting a discount, though it sure is getting pricey…
I assume everyone else with a monthly all airline pass received the same notice?
