I have been running an extra long ethernet cable between my device and the ground during flight.

 

I found an extra long ethernet cable on Amazon.  Seems to work well.


😂🤣😂🤣 LOL an ethernet cable 🤣 I get your sense of humor, that’s funny!!! 

 

But all joking aside 😄, internet is spotty as per my usual experience. On this flight, I had internet at takeoff, “no internet connection” for awhile, but then internet was fine again. I should note, this is just connecting to the SWA WiFi and using the free portal - not paid internet.

I’ve only been using the free portal as well. I’m not willing to risk wasting $8 for the issue to happen still and take ages to get a refund
