  • Using Safari or any browser that can change your user-agent to a phone, open any webpage after changing your UA and connecting to your inflight internet
  • Purchase a mobile plan (for significantly cheaper than normal)
  • Enjoy cheaper wifi on your laptop, despite the claims that it’s “mobile only”
