I *think* the wifi symbol was used for the WiFi streaming entertainment on the 737s? Does it show for the F100s they've installed streaming entertainment on? But I could be wrong. I guess wifi/entertainment and wifi/internet access are not necessarily the same thing/product.

When doing a route search (only) on the flight status page https://flightstatus.virginaustralia.com it appears with a wifi symbol next to the flight number. This only appears on aircraft that are actually internet connected (wifi entertainment doesn't count as the entire 737 fleet has got this).
At this stage the fleet wifi connection is:
B737-700 = 0/2 - 0%
B737-800 = 67/78 - 85.9% (based on the flight status page)
B777-300 = 5/5 - 100%
A330-200 = 2/6 - 33% (based on the posts above)
The 737-8 connections appear to have basically stopped as April this year saw 84% of the 737-8 fleet connected and I've got my doubt's about the rest actually being getting it because the remaining 11 are the oldest in the fleet.
For comparison Qantas has around 66% of the 737's connected and half of the A330's.
Hi all ... I have a VA flight for the first time in a few years and will need to do some work on the flight so will need to use the wifi. Can anyone help me understand the pricing for Domestic? Does the price differ by flight route? I'm flying BNESYD with VA, and then home PERBNE with them.
