Thanks so much to a reader who gave me four GoGo internet passes that will expire at the end of the year.  They had a pack of passes, and have four left they won’t be able to use before they expire, so I want to help them get in the hands of someone who can use them.  I have only ever been on one flight that had on-board internet, so I can’t put them to good use myself.  Hopefully one of you flies an airline that has the on-board capabilities to use these passes so you can read all about miles and points while soaring through the sky.  In case you aren’t familiar, some airlines where you are likely to be able to use the GoGo passes are: American Airlines, Delta, AirTran, Alaska, and Virgin America.  Head here to see all of the participating airlines.

To enter to win the four passes, just leave a comment here stating why you like on-board internet.  Limit one entry per person, must be 18+, void where prohibited, no camels allowed, etc, etc.  Entries/comments must be left on this post by 11:59PM on Tuesday November 27th.

  2. arthur says:

    I use wireless this time so i can send out all my Xmas wishes as i will be in the air on my way to NYC Xmas eve!

  3. Kalpesh says:

    Its helps me stay connected and make the flight a big more interesting

  4. Justin M. says:

    Being connect during flights helps me keep up-to-date on my favorite bloggers!

  5. Joel says:

    I have never used the Internet from cruising altitude, but I have a few transcon mr’s scheduled next month that will get me to AA Platinum. Having GoGo would sure help pass the time. I’d even post pictures from the flight on my Facebook for friends and comment on your most recent blog post. I might even watch a movie on Netflix. So many possibilities!

  6. Joel says:

    Read Boarding Area in flight.

  7. P S says:

    To let my kids know I’m alright….

  8. Ron says:

    It relieves inflight boredom.

  14. Tri says:

    if im in economy ill take what i can get.

  15. Scott B says:

    I would use on the pass on my flight to Europe in December. While my plane going to Europe will have internet, my flight coming home does not and that is going to make it a very long flight. I will be flying home from Amman, Jordan so it will be a long 12 hours. I love using a pass on GoGo internet because more time than not, the internet is hardly useable. When I use a free pass it is less stressful when you are trying to use the internet and it wont work. You don’t feel like you are losing as much.

    Happy Thanksgiving.

  16. Tim2 says:

    Mommy points, I actually have 4 trips planned next year, I would love these vouchers!

I love onboard internet because this affords me the peace, quiet and focus time I need to tackle tasks that would otherwise be spent on wasteful tasks or on tasks that are more difficult because I’m trying to work on only those things that could be saved to my hard-drive.

    I would like go go internet access and passes so I can make mileage and points comments on the mommy points blog WHILE actually traveling!

    Like this last week, my and baby flew for the very first time! It was an amazing experience but since I didn’t have Internet, I couldn’t share it with the world.
