Fresh off the announcement of its ten year tie-up with Qantas, Emirates has upped the stakes by announcing that from early October, it’ll offer in-flight Internet access on its A380 aircraft flying in Australia. The press release doesn’t list pricing, but AusBT reports that it’ll cost between $7.50 for a rather meagre 5MB up to $25 for 100MB of usage.
Would the inclusion of inflight access tilt the balance for you based on Angus’ recent comparison of Emirates and Qantas’ relative A380 offerings?
