Just a fortnight ago Qantas' CEO Alan Joyce hinted that Qantas was in no rush to introduce in-flight internet. Fortunately for long-distance travellers, that might have been a slightly disingenuous comment, since Qantas has apparently now begun its long-awaited Wi-Fi offering for A380 passengers.

Australian Business Traveller reports that while the service hasn't been officially announced yet, Qantas began running in-flight trials on A380 flights between Australian and both the US and the UK from February 29. Right now it's only on offer to business and first class passengers. The airline is said to be planning an official launch today, so we'll keep you posted as more news emerges.
