Before my recent American Airlines flight from Los Angeles to Charlotte, I noticed that there were no power outlets on the plane while doublechecking the seat configuration on SeatGuru (always doublecheck for the best seats and the amenities).
I think I was the only one who checked ahead of time. On the flight, everyone around me in first class (I got upgraded thanks to my Executive Platinum status) was shocked and dismayed. I wasn’t, and because I planned ahead, I came prepared with my ChargeTech PLUG Portable Power Supply (there are cheaper external charger options, like these), which I made sure was fully charged. While others were out of luck, I was able to work on my laptop and charge my iPhone the whole 4.5-hour flight.
