On this week's frequent flyer podcast we have a quick chat about recent award bookings and the inflight power and wifi options for the big four carriers in the USA. Links to the inflight power and inflight wifi choices are below:
- Many of the airlines use DC power through a cigarette style lighter. You may want to purchase an adapter such as the Wagan Smart AC 120 Watt USB Power Inverter or charge several devices at once with the Kensington Air Power Inverter with Two USB Ports
- American Airlines: inflight power is offered on Boeing 777, 767, 737, Boeing MD80, and B757 aircraft.
- American Airlines Wifi: is available on all Boeing 767-200 flights and select MD80 and 737 aircraft. Use this tool to check wifi on your upcoming flight within 24 hours of departure.
- >United Airlines: has in flight power on select aircraft, the combination of aircraft type and cabin are too numerous to list so please refer to the United page.
- United Airlines: wifi is currently only available on the United P.S. service between JFK and either LAX or SFO
- Delta Airlines: has inflight power in first class on the domestic fleet and in the premium cabins and some rows of coach on international aircraft.
- Delta Airlines: has been progressively rolling out wifi fleet wide. See this recent blog post for the latest numbers.
- Continental Airlines: power ports (requiring EmPower adapters) are available on 767s while no adapter is required on other aircraft, see the Continental Airlines website for more information on power.
- Continental Airlines: wifi? Who needs wifi when you can get a not-dog?
