As we approach the holiday travel season, many of you will undoubtedly take to the skies to get where you’re going. It’s so peaceful, flying up there on an airplane, disconnected from the world.
But you can’t keep your head in the clouds forever. Just as smartphones ruined e-mail-free commutes (don’t do that), inevitably someone would wire up planes to the grid and pull you back to earth. That someone was Gogo.
At least they’re doing something nice for us in return.
To spread the word about their service and get more people to
get addicted give it a try, they’re offering a code for FREE Internet. Yes you heard right, that’s FREE. Just take your computer on your next flight, once the plane hits 10,000 feet and you’re cleared to use portable electronic devices, launch your browser and head to gogoinflight.com. Create an account and enter this code:
You’ll get free wi-fi access for the duration of your flight. It should work on any Air Canada, AirTran, American Airlines, Delta Air Lines, United Airlines, or Virgin America flight that features a wi-fi sticker on the outside of the plane. There are more details on which airlines and which routes feature Gogo at their site.
So enjoy the free Interweb access in the sky. Use the time to do something productive, something fun, or something like starting a blog. The sky’s the limit (I’m sorry, I’ll stop now).
Disclaimer: Just like with the Amazon referral deal before it, this Gogo referral deal also involves me getting something in return for referring you to Gogo. This time, if you use the free Internet credit, I get a free Internet credit. Of course, I wouldn’t be doing this if the free Internet credit wasn’t worthwhile for you. I could just take the code they gave me and use it ad infinitum via different free e-mail addresses. Hmm… Wonder if email@example.com is taken yet? I hope the Gogo folks planned for that contingency. Anyway, happy free Interneting. The code expires 1/7/2010. But that’s not ‘til next year…
