A vast improvement on what was previously offered.

Assuming XFA has had it install as well.

XFA and XFB have had wifi for a while (since the last C/D check). The FA's told me it was rarely switched on as it 'does not reach the back of economy properly so we don't turn it on or advertise it as people down there get upset'.

I've scored XFB today by the looks of it. Heading over to Perth ex Melb. Downloaded the app. So keen to try it out.

Hopefully you aren't seated in the back of the plane.
Every time i've been on A or B since the install, it has not been turned on. That's around 10 times now. I'd say your odds of having it enabled are low.

I can report that it was in fact working and quite well for me last Wednesday (on XFB). I was seated in 8A. Didn't notice if anyone else was using it.
I have not yet encountered it being used on an Embraer yet which is quite annoying especially as I take an E190 from WA to the East Coast quite often - VA1851 on a Friday

I was on XFB on Sunday evening and the wifi was doing ok; there was some trouble loading the location map, but the movies and CDs played ok.
