    There's a story going viral about a guy that racked up a ~$1,200 inflight internet charge on his Singapore Airlines flight between London and Singapore. The story as such doesn't have any merit. Singapore Airlines very clearly publishes their "overage" charges, and this guy was trying to upload some documents which took up a lot of data. And given how slow the inflight wifi is, you often have to try several times, which takes up even more data. So it's his fault for racking up so many charges, because he should have known better. After all, there's an inflight wifi "status" page which shows your usage up until that point in the flight. That being said, this situation does expose how ridiculously overpriced wifi on Singapore Airlines is, and how far off base the airline is with their approach to inflight wifi.
