A survey of air passengers has confirmed that they would not shell out extra money for in-flight Wi-Fi.

Travellers are not interested in in-flight Wi-Fi if it comes at a cost, a survey has confirmed.

The research shows that 84 per cent of air passengers would actually rather go without internet access than pay for the privilege.

This is despite the fact that many travellers supported the idea of Wi-Fi during their flight, with more than a quarter of men and over a fifth of women saying that they would be more productive if they could work on the plane.

A quarter even suggested that they should not have to pay, because web access is on its way to being a human right.

But others were worried that staying plugged into their emails and social networks while travelling would damage the holiday atmosphere on their journey. Another tenth admitted that they would be unable to relax if they knew they could access work en route.
