Onboard power

So you can stay productive in the air, you'll find power outlets at every First and Business Class seat, and on our new planes, power at every seat in the Main Cabin. Other aircraft have power in select rows of the Main Cabin - just look for the lightning bolt symbol on the overhead bins. You’ll also find USB ports on select aircraft and all new planes include USB ports and power outlets at every seat.

Type of power you can expect

Most of our planes feature AC power outlets and those that offer DC power are in the process of being converted. In the meantime, you can use a DC-to-AC adaptor on select flights if you’re in First or Business Class. Simply ask your flight attendant for an adaptor.
