Gadgeteer Loves USB Power Now on Alaska Airlines
Question:Â Would you take a slimmer seat cushion (thus less space) to gain USB power?
If your answer is yes, then Alaska Airlines has you covered.
Alaska announced last week that the new seats, manufactured by German company Recaro Aircraft Seating, will also include 110-volt socket AND USB power outlets on the seat back in front of every passenger.Â To date, the company has installed the slim seats with USB sockets on seven new planes and plans to have them on 75% of its fleet of 125 planes by the end of 2014.
Initial response from customers “loving them” says Marianne Lindsey, spokeswoman for Alaska.
