Flying High With iPods
If you forgot to charge your iPod the night before your big flight—you may be in luck. Certain United Airlines flights are allowing those with iPods to plug them into the plane's entertainment system.
The super cool part is that you can charge and watch videos that are downloaded on your iPod on the screen on the back of the seat in front of you. But if you are just crossing the country or only traveling a few states away, don’t expect this option: iPod charging will be mostly for international flights. Also the feature only works with the 30-pin connecter…which means your membership in the elite iPod club just became even more exclusive! Psssh—toss your other MP3 players at the cabin door.
Does this really seem like a benefit for passengers? Or would you rather check luggage for free? [USA Today]
