Gogo In-Flight Wi-Fi

By June 7, 2017Travel

I don’t think I’ll ever understand Gogo In-flight Wi-Fi pricing. I bought a full-day Gogo Wi-Fi pass for $19.99 on the way out to San Jose, CA. On the way back, that same all-day pass is $39.99. Why? Did the number of hours in a day change? What possible justification does Gogo have for charging so much for Wi-Fi?

It sounds absurd to me, but is it the flight segment order? Here is my itenieary:
Sunday, June 4

  1. St. Louis (STL) to Dallas/Ft. Worth (DFW)
  2. Dallas/Ft. Worth (DFW) to San Jose (SJC)

Wednesday, June 7

  1. San Jose (SJC) to Dallas/Ft. Worth (DFW)
  2. Dallas/Ft. Worth (DFW) to St. Louis (STL)

And here is a photo of a 24 hour clock:

Here’s what I do know: we are halfway through 2017 and still have third-world internet on airplanes with fist-world prices.
