Update: It looks like Santa himself stopped by the blog – “Thanks for the shout out Angelina. Yes, we enjoyed surprising hundreds of members yesterday on Milepoint with free wi-fi passes for this holiday travel. We’ve got more surprises during the holidays as well for more members of Milepoint. A few weeks ago we surprised hundreds of members by giving out gift certificates that they could donate as real money to a charity of their choice on #GivingTuesday. Stay tuned, there really is a Santa@Milepoint and as WestJet so aptly proves—there’s a lot of good in this world. Kudos to them. BTW, both Mrs. Claus and I enjoy reading your blog.”
I was greeted with a holiday surprise last night when I logged into my Milepoint message center; I was suggested to “start a conversation” with Milepoint handle, “Santa” and tell him I wanted a Gogo pass for Christmas. I received a reply with a unique code good for a free Gogo session not too long after I had sent my message.
The only caveat are that the codes expire on 12/31/13 (yes, in a few weeks), and I can imagine there being limited quantities, but if you have some holiday travel coming up, this would be a perfect way for you to stay connected in flight!
Speaking of Santas, have you seen this amazing video yet? I literally teared up – it’s awesome!
