Singapore Airlines' first class passengers are about to be spoilt just that little bit more, with unlimited inflight WiFi now appearing on the menu along with superb food, wine and service.
The Star Alliance member previously offered first class travellers on its Airbus A380 and Boeing 777 jets an initial 100MB of free data.
Business class passengers and elite PPS Club members have also received a bump from a blink-and-it's-gone 30MB to a slightly more useable 100MB per flight.
Onboard WiFi is offered on most of the airline's newer planes including the Airbus A380, Boeing 777-300ER, Airbus A350s and Boeing 787-10.
This covers the vast majority of flights from Australia to The Lion City, and onwards to high-demand destinations across Asia, Europe and the United States.
However, the rates for inflight Internet depend on the aircraft and the technology it's using.
In some instances Singapore Airlines charges for how long you're connected, although there's also a data cap in place. For other aircraft each session is limited to a set amount of data.
Passengers don't have to do anything different to make use of their new boosted allowances – just connect to the KrisWorld network once onboard and wait for the WiFi login page (or bookmark wifi.singaporeair.com).
Your email address, last name and seat number is needed to activate the complimentary connection.
Only one device can be connected at a time per user, but you can swap between devices by signing in again.
If you don't have limitless data, there's also a handy 'pause' button to freeze the connection for a while and ensure your device doesn't waste precious megabytes through background updates.
Executive Traveller tested out Singapore Airlines' WiFi from Sydney to Singapore recently (under the old allowances), and found the 100MB limit now available to all business class passengers was fine for checking the news, replying emails and even browsing social media across the 8-hour journey.
Although we couldn't conduct a speed test due to having limited bandwidth, the general browsing experience was reasonably zippy.
