It follows the golden rule: If it’s asking for an in-flight discount code or a hotel upgrade, the best way to get it is to flat out ask for it. Get to a real person, and ask. There is no secret trick sometimes.

Considering Gogo recently raised the cost of their all-day passes to $19 (if prepurchased; purchasing during the ride is significantly more exorbitant), it’s not a bad idea to ask for a discount before jetting into the sunset.
