How to get free wifi on planes

While on a Delta flight recently I wanted to see if there was a way I didn’t have to pay to use the wifi and was able to get 30 minutes of free wifi via Gogo wireless.

Once connecting to the wifi you’re directed to Gogo’s website where they have a live chat feature (top right). Load up the chat and say you want to try out their wireless but don’t want to pay just yet because you don’t know if their speeds are fast enough. They will give you a 30 minute redeemable coupon.

What’s interesting is Gogo acted like I had already created an account even though I used fake credentials. My name was Barack Obama with email barack@obama.com. Lynn, the chatter, told me I already had an account setup with that email and gave me a password that brought me to the page to redeem my 30 free minutes. Next time I’d like to see if I can try this with different accounts once the first allotment is up.
