Is aeroplane still the standard usage in UK fiction or is airplane becoming acceptable? I know airplane is standard in Canada and the US.

I'd say 'yes' but then I'm a tad old-fashioned :)
In modern-ish conversation it'd probably be 'plane but personally I wouldn't use such a contraction in narrative. Lots of writers would, though.
