Hi Todd, below are the steps we took to fix the printer issue.
1. Wireless printer was configured to connect to some unknown wireless network. So we had to reset the printer when we took it back to the office.
2. We upgraded the firmware on the printer so that it could support air print. We enabled Bonjour on the printer.
3. Configured printer with IP address 192.168.1.173 and successfully connected it to the plane’s “VQBZZ Wireless Access” network
4. Tested printer successfully from windows laptop via wireless and iPad via air print.
