Hi all - I took QF756 yesterday from Adelaide to Sydney. In Adelaide there's a good view of the plane you're about to get on after you've scanned your boarding pass and walk down the ramp towards the jetway. I was happy to see that the 737 operating the flight had the big Wifi symbol and the words "high speed wifi on board" painted on the fuselage - my first opportunity to try out the streaming... But then when I got on the plane there was no mention of it. No announcement, nothing in the seat pocket and no available wifi network to join during the flight. i've just checked with flightradar24 which tells me the plane was VH-XZB.
Was it only introduced as a trial to start with? Or has the system experienced teething problems?

I flew on WiFi enabled Qantas flight a few weeks ago from Sydney to Brisbane and I think it had the same rego. They showed a very short video, just after the safety video, to say the flight was WiFI enabled and how to use it. I could see my flight had access to the service, in the Qantas app, a few days before the flight within the entertainment section for the booking. I think I had to set my phone up the same way as you do for Q streaming.
