I also note that free iMessage is disabled once I decide to upgrade my access during the flight and pay for wifi.

I should have been more clear. This is using an Android Phone on Google Project Fi. iPhones weren't an option on Project Fi until a few months ago, this issue has existed for longer than that.

iPhones on Project Fi don't have the full capabilities of the Android options. Specifically they don't have the Wifi SMS and calling options. iMessage should work properly inflight iPhone-iPhone. That's an Apple service not a real SMS, it's more similar to hangouts or whatsapp than a text message.
