    I also found out that the access continues as you move planes – log off on one, get on another within the access period you paid for and log in using the same details.

    That’s the way every other airline I’ve tried wifi on has done it. You have ongoing access on the next flight. So it’s what I’ve come to expect.

    Anyway, I don’t feel like I’ve been flying much Air NZ lately but landed on them recently and was able to trial the Wifi. Here’s a few pics.

     

    Cool you can switch devices. I felt I was stuck on Etihad with the device I had logged in with for the rest of the flight.

    It gives you a heads up regarding limitations of the Wifi.

    Airpoint dollars or credit/debit card to pay. I used the cc because I value my APD too much.

    Easy switching devices. But I didn’t.

    Some of the info on the IFE. 

    Reasonable explanations.

    I did download the speed test thing and measured it twice

    D/L 18.9, upload 4.54

    Ping 568ms Jitter 46ms Loss –

     

    Second time D/L 19.5 upload 4.06

    Ping 577 Jitter 21ms Loss –

     

    No idea what that means but might mean something to someone else!

    It basically means the WiFI is very, very good!

    Looks like they’ve just had a bit of an update to their IFE. I think the info is presented better, rather than on a placard like some other airlines.

    Feedback for 100 APD

    This is my favourite screen where there’s a bit of explanation on the ‘how’ 🙂

    Wifi help:

    Bit of a blur but describes when it’s available.

    I do think it would be worth while for them to add a wifi symbol to the home screen for when the service is on or off (with the strike through of the symbol) just like you get on your phone because people know those symbols.

    Pricing has been cut further and finalised – $25 for long haul, $15 for short haul and $9 for one hour. There is also a 10 min free option per flight.
