I've flown Delta for 5 RT flights so far this year and with 4 more coming up before the end of June, this is going to make my flights that much better. Thanks OP!

Or just buy a BlackBerry. The Z10 is definitely better than any existing smartphone.

Off-topic but I'm curious what American-based airline you like more.

I've flown on all of them and compared to United, American, and US Airways (also AirTran, Southwest, Spirit but they're in a different discount category) specifically, I've not found a better carrier. It may also just be the routes I've flown but for domestic and international travel Delta has had the best service and bang for my buck.

I ask because I'm starting a new job and I was asked which frequent flyer program I wanna participate in and if there's a better airline I need to get on it!
I died again after reading this. Facepalm

Delta international is what airlines use as an example what NOT to become. It's probably right above Air India.

Just wait till you've flown Qatar, Emirates, Etihad, Singapore or even BA...

The only crappier in the US (domestic) are probably AirTran (now luckiliy managed by SW) or Spirit (who penny pinch so hard its embarassing to even fly with them).

Even easier..Just enter "blackberry" as the user agent in the browser I mentioned in the OP.
You can do that whenever. When you get on the plane open that app, browse to any site and it will redirect you to the gogo portal and finish the activation. Then you can go back to any browser/apps/etc for the flight.

Currently all those user agents still work. Can also try just "BB10" if you want to try a new/shorter one.

Working for me right now on a LAS-DTW flight. On my phone I had to use the long form user agent in journey lite.

Mozilla/5.0 (BB10; Touch) AppleWebKit/537.10 (KHTML, like Gecko) Version/10.0.9.773 Mobile Safari/537.10

On my laptop, running IE, "bb10" worked fine.

FYI...it appears the GoGo system only lets you get the free wifi once a day. To get around this, go into settings in the JourneyLite app (or which ever browser you are using) and clear history, cache and cookies.

in Journey Lite, you only need to type "blackberry z10" not that entire string. I have confirmed this works on several flights

Thank You! Flew from JFK to Hawaii yesterday. Unfortunately wifi stops working 100 miles away from continental US.

Facetime didnt work, neither did amazon instant video and hulu plus. Pandora worked great though

Thanks again

Yep, just "blackberry" or "BB10" or "z10" should also work. I listed them a few incase they started killing some.

Confirmed again on flight last night, just the string "blackberry" as your user agent still works fine. Don't see it going away before the promotion expires - so enjoy!
