South by Southwest is traditionally a popular place for food trucks – but Gogo wouldn’t be Gogo without taking things to the extreme. We’re turning our business jet (GogoOne) into a BBQ food truck. Of course, the jet has all the latest Gogo technology – along with some of the best BBQ found in Austin from our new best friends at Keith’s BBQ.
We’ve already booked a lot of the seats on the jet, but we’ve left some open for a Gogo fan who happens to be in Austin (or who can make their way there for this flight). The lucky winner will take a flight up with us on GogoOne, see SXSW from a whole new level, all while enjoying ribs, brisket, chicken and more. We’ll also hook you up with an amazing Gogo gift bag, and some other surprises!
To enter, we need you to follow us on Twitter (@gogo and @gogocco), and send out a Tweet containing hashtag #gogobbq10k. After sending your Tweet, sit back and relax. Multiple tweets will not increase your chance of winning.
You need to be 21 or older to fly along with us, and you’ll need to bring a valid picture ID. We have one seat on Friday March 7 and one on Saturday March 8. We’ll arrange a ride (in style) for you from Austin to the airport and back.
If you are flying this Sunday, chances are you are going to want to stay up to date with real-time scores from the big game taking place in New Jersey. Due to the nature of in-flight Wi-Fi, we are unable to provide streaming video services.
Because of this, we’ve collected some great real-time resources that will keep you up to date, without having to rely on streaming video services.
ITASCA, IL. – Sept. 20, 2013 – Gogo (NASDAQ: GOGO), the world leader of in-flight connectivity and a pioneer in wireless in-flight digital entertainment solutions, is partnering with Allstate to offer passengers 30 minutes of free in-flight Internet access on their smartphones during weekend flights.
“We are extremely excited to work with Allstate to offer benefits to all Gogo in-flight Internet users who fly during the weekend,” said Ash ElDifrawi, Gogo’s chief commercial officer. “This partnership with Allstate is a great example of the ways in which Gogo is working with leading brands to reach a highly connected audience while they are in the air.”
“The partnership with Gogo provides another opportunity for Allstate to be a part of the good in people’s lives,” said Bob Wasserman, senior vice president, e-Business Marketing, Allstate Insurance Company. “Connecting with friends and family while in the air allows Allstate to bring the Good Life to customers and non-customers alike.”
Starting September 21, the free 30 minute sessions will be available to passengers on all Gogo equipped flights with the exception of Gogo equipped Air Canada aircraft.
Five years ago, Gogo revolutionized the in-flight experience by offering an Air-To-Ground, cellular based network that enabled passengers to connect to the Internet above 30,000 feet and traveling at speeds in excess of 500 miles-per-hour. Today, more than a million passengers a month use the service to stay connected in-flight. Gogo’s connectivity service can now be found on nearly 2,000 commercial aircraft over nine major airline partners. More than 7,000 commercial flights each day are connected using Gogo’s service.
In today’s blog post, we’ll cover something all frequent fliers can use (besides Gogo of course) – peace and quiet. For years, Bose has ruled the skies, and if you look up the aisle of your average business route plane, you’ll see plenty of passengers wearing the larger on-ear Bose QuietComfort headphones. They are not cheap, but not much else performs as well as these noise canceling headphones. Today, we’ll look at the newest from the Bose labs – the QuietComfort 20 headphones. Continue reading
Last month, I joined hundreds of tech and gaming fans for Engadget + Gdgt LIVE in NYC. Engadget + Gdgt Live is the only nation-wide tech event series that connects thousands of real people with the top brands in technology. During the event, held in SoHo we kicked it in mobile lounges packed with the latest tech from from Samsung, Monster, Gogo and more!
Throughout the evening Monster hosted demos highlighting their new durable EA Sports headphones for gamers with Brand Ambassador Tyson Beckford inside of the Monster lounge. The Samsung mobile lounge hosted a variety of activities from the S Beam social bar to demonstrating animated photo features of the new Galaxy S4 smartphone. Gogo welcomed guests to a 30,000ft experience within their lounge area where guests lounged in the ultra luxe Gogo in flight seats, played games for cool prizes and even took home prints of their Instragrammed experiences. Check out the evening of Engadget + Gdgt LIVE fun with Gogo below.
