Make sure your iPad is not locked. Tap Settings / AutoLock
Alternatively, a double-tap will bring up the controls overlaid on the lock-screen, and both these shortcuts also give access to the AirPlay icon and menu.
Sometimes just a restart will help. Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button until the red slider appears.
Slide your finger across the slider to turn off iPad. To turn iPad back on, press and hold the Sleep/Wake until the Apple logo appears.

Struggling with this for several weeks. Tried Apple Support Denmark without any help.
Possible solution: The issue is between the router and the Ipad 2. Both Ipad and Apple Tv upgraded to newest versions. Also router (NBG-419N from Zyxel) upgraded to newest firmware. Now I have tried setting the router in Remote Management, Server Access from "WAN" to "LAN & WAN". As soon as I did this my router rebooted and the icon came on my Ipad. I have now been playing with it for 2 hours and i works. I tell you if it still works tomorrow.
I had the same problem but discovered the Airplay icon only shows when the Airplay enabled device/speaker is discoverable. This could account for why the icon seems inconsistent.
I rebooted my speaker, started up iTunes again and the Airplay icon was back.
