UPDATE: Entry for the contest ended on Wednesday, February 17th. Stay tuned for the announcement of winners and to follow along with us on the big flight!
This is big. Really big. The biggest giveaway we have offered at AirlineReporter. How would you like to fly on Gogo’s own private Boeing 737-500 (named “Jimmy Ray”) on March 13th? Oh heck yes you would!
Gogo uses the plane to test their awesome technology (many of you have probably seen/used their in-flight WiFi). It is decked out in a VIP configuration and two of our readers can see for themselves by winning a free trip from Chicago to Austin — where SXSW will be going down.
Our Johnny Nguyen got to fly on the plane a while back and I loved watching his experience — I wanted to fly on it too. Join me, JL Johnson, and Dave Delagarza on this very special SXSW party flight. Keep reading to learn more and enter our contest!
GOGO CONTEST – What each of the two winners get:

Can we assume that Jimmy Ray has a bit more legroom than typical cattle cars?

BBJ’s Rock. Clever contest.
Hi Clark… technically not a BBJ, since N321GG had a previous commercial life, and it’s set up as a very comfortable 2-class airliner. Not the luxuriousness of a blinged out BBJ, but it will be a blast anyway. Trust me! https://www.airlinereporter.com/2016/01/flying-gogo-boeing-737-500-first-class/
