On an iOS device you can download the browser called Sleipnir from the app store, and change your User Agent.
It's a little tough to find in the app, but when you're on a page, tap the bottom center button, and then the setting icon (top left), go to Advanced Settings, and then User Agent. Put in one of the strings in the OP.
If you have a jail broken device, you can just get the app called User Agent Faker.
If I was the OP and planned on using it I would have kept it to myself. If every single person is using the inflight wifi, the speeds will be so slow that it would be pretty much useless.
I'd say the odds are slim that too many people on any given flight frequent forums that tell you to change your browser's user agent string for free WIFI. Probably even less likely that all of those people go to the trouble of actually changing the user agent.
The only browser I could find that lets you set a custom string is JourneyLite in the app store. https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/j...39952?mt=8
Under settings (+ button - > Settings -> Pretend to be... enter custom string there) Once you browse and get access, you should be able to return to Safari for the rest of your flight [need to confirm]
Worked like a charm! I downloaded JourneyLite to my iPhone and changed the user agent to the first custom field in the original post. Did the gogo login via Journey. And now I'm posting via the slickdeals app on my way to NYC. Thanks so much!
