    I just got off a flight that had free WiFi. I'm wondering if anybody has had problems with this before. I was connected and had a strong signal however I wasn't able to use the internet without being connected to a mobile network. Did I have a wrong setting?
    Thanks in advance

    Did you have Airplane Mode turned on? That will override any settings to have WiFi on.

    I too had a flight where there was in-air Wifi. However, it wasn't free. It was pretty expensive for the 3 hour flight that I had. I was on a Delta flight.

    I was flying virgin airlines. It was free. I tried airplane mode both on and off. I wasn't able to connect to the internet even though I we connected to the wireless signal.

    Probably had to go to their website and register your device...which isn't free.
