Unauthorized in-flight wireless charges
Have others been surprised by unauthorized in-flight wireless charges from AT&T? I got charged $128 for in-flight wireless on a Lufthansa flight from Frankfurt to the US. However, I never authorized or requested in-flight data, nor was I aware of in-flight data usage. Why would I, when I was also paying $10/day for AT&T's International Passport Service which covers international voice/data. I reported to AT&T but they're insisting I pay for these unauthorized charges. They're trying to negotiate me down to 50%, but I refuse on principle. AT&T knows better and should be ashamed. This is another consumer-fraud scandal brewing. I reported to the FTC Consumer Protection Unit (https://www.ftccomplaintassistant.gov/), which took just five minutes to file a complaint. Please let me know if others are in the same boat with AT&T.
