I can't get the LiveATC Android app to work when connected to inflight WiFi on Southwest. Is it just me and now, or is this a general problem? Would they be blocking the feed? Other web browsing is fine.

Due to scarce bandwidth on their up/downlink, they block a lot of streaming services.  Though I used it recently on a Southwest flight so I wonder if this is new.

It is. They just announced tiers to their WiFi service. $2 per day for iMessage.

What this means is that they've isolated the ports that iMessage (and possibly others) use, and are either blocking those, or allowing them for a fee. LiveATC probably got caught in it, unless you want to pay the $8 per day to have it with WiFi.

I had the full, paid wifi access, so should have been OK for anything, unless they've targeted specific types of traffic to block.
