Travel Tip of the Day: Check for Outlets on the Plane

Seat Check for Outlets on the Plane

  1. Since I only fly economy, and most outlets are in Suite/Business this tip does not apply to me. Thanks anyway for letting me know what I’m missing.

  2. I had same experience yesterday. Unfortunately we were on the ground 3 hrs waiting for de-icing and atc clearance and the power plugs don’t work until full power after takeoff

    Seat Guru is awesome! Everyone should check it before they fly – just think, someone else did all that work so you don’t have to!
