Wi-fi is now available on three short-haul British Airways planes.  The equipment has actually been fitted to far more but is not being turned on yet whilst the system is fully tested.

From Heathrow, you are looking for registration numbers G-TTNC and G-TTOE.  From Gatwick, it is functioning on G-GATK.

British Airways wifi now live on 3 planes

If you are on one of these aircraft then the crew should make an announcement.  If they forget, the system will still be working as it turns on automatically when the aircraft reaches 10,000 feet.
