That doesn't say if there is a charge or not though!

From memory I think you do have to pay.

I believe they charge different tarrif's depending on the device used.

I found a news item here from a year ago which details the prices. Not sure if these prices are still current but should give you an idea.

**Too late to edit above post**

Found another story which also says charges are dependant on data used.

I have yet to see any free WiFi on any of the flights I have taken - and by that I mean anything beyond accessing the captive apps that the airline provide. I'd be curious to see reference as to which airlines provide any sort of free WiFi in any class.

Do you have to pay to access wifi on an ipad on long haul flights if you are in business class ?

I will be travelling on a Boeing 777-300ER from Brisbane to Dubai and an Airbus industrie 380-800 from Dubai to Heathrow.

They charge basically around 50 CENTS Per MEGABYTE!!! OMG! So, if you use 2 gigabytes on a long-haul 12 hour trip (which you could easily do), it would cost $1,000!!!
