Gogo Raises The Cost Of Their All-Day Wifi Passes

Gogo Raises The Cost Of Their All-Day Wifi Passes

13

I have a Gogo monthly Wi-Fi pass, which I find to be worthwhile given how often I travel domestically. While I don’t love the quality of Gogo Wi-Fi, it’s still the only way to stay connected on most American flights (though for better or worse, American will apparently be changing Wi-Fi providers in the future).

However, for those who don’t have a monthly Gogo Wi-Fi pass, the best value for getting Gogo Wi-Fi is to buy an all-day pass, which up until now has cost $16 per 24 hours.

The catch is that you need to purchase the pass before you get on your flight to get that pricing, because if you buy Wi-Fi onboard it will typically be significantly more expensive (as you can see below).

Well, unfortunately it looks like Gogo has raised the pricing on these passes. The cost of a 24 hour pass has increased from $16 to $19. Ultimately in most instances this will still represent a better deal than buying the Wi-Fi directly on a flight, though it’s not as much of a steal anymore.

However, do keep in mind that there are a couple of other good ways to get free Gogo Wi-Fi nowadays, that are at least worth being aware of:

Will the new Gogo pricing impact whether or not you buy an all-day pass?

    The AA link gives you the $16 rate but that only works on AA flights. I fly Alaska and I can still get the $16 if I use their direct link too: https://www.alaskaair.com/content/travel-info/flight-experience/inflight-entertainment/wifi.aspx.

    The big difference is that you used to be able to Gogoair.com/all-day-passes and buy an all day pass for $16 and it would work on ANY airline but that rate has just been increased to $19. It must have changed recently...

It must have changed recently because I purchased an all day / any carrier pass at the end of Oct at the $16 rate.

    I buy the all day pass frequently. Now I go to the airline's direct purchase link rather than going to gogo.com. It's not as convenient but it saves me a couple of dollars.

    Booo you removed my comment.

    I pointed out you and put in a link to say you can still buy the all day domestic Gogo pass for $16 right now.

    You just need to go via the American website and it loads up AA gogo with the rate still in there.
    I think you should update the post with that information.

    Funny you bring this up as I was buying one the other day, I spent 10 minutes online and found a way to buy the all day domestic pass for $16. And its still showing as $16 now.

    You go direct to the AA website link
    https://www.aa.com/i18n/travel-info/experience/entertainment/wi-fi-and-connectivity.jsp

    Go there and it takes you to this link to buy the pass for $16 all day domestic

    Hope that helps everyone out.

    Nice 40% increase GOGO

  7. John Thompson

    I just now this minute bought a 24 hour WiFi pass on Delta.com for $16.

  8. Steven

    They also increased the hourly rate from $5 to $7.

    They are improving the quality of service by raising their prices. Less people online, better speed. :p

    Gogo has been a disaster on my last 4 flights on Delta. I used all-day passes and service was completely useless. At least customer service was great and they gave me 4 new passes since I basically could not use the service at all. If they are increasing the price they better offer a better service.

    US Bank Flexperks card. $59 annual fee gets you 10 gogo passes that are now worth $190. Can't beat that deal if you use them all or even just half.

  12. DWT

    Yup I'm not seeing the all day mobile pass as an option anymore. That was actually a great deal as they were only $8 when purchased in advance.

  13. Guy

    I cannot find the all day mobile pass anymore. Is this new as well?
