Comments on: Hey airport architects, why not design more power outlets in seating areas? http://designnotes.info/?p=1621 Testing & Sprinting Mon, 20 Feb 2017 09:49:00 +0000 hourly 1 https://wordpress.org/?v=4.7.7 By: michaelsurtees http://designnotes.info/?p=1621&cpage=1#comment-100193 Sat, 27 Dec 2008 23:14:56 +0000 http://designnotes.info/?p=1621#comment-100193 After reading your mention I noticed a ton of jet blue ads on the 4,5 & 6 yesterday as I bounced around the island. Too bad they don't fly to Canada…

It's the airlines. They will want to figure out how to charge for outlets.
It's the wifi providers. How do they know the people using their outlets are wifi users?

A couple of years ago I ended up doing a conference call in the Las Vegas airport on the floor behind a staircase next to a Starbucks because that's the only outlet I could find at the moment.

I just flew from Texas to New York and back last week on Southwest airlines and I noticed that all of Southwest's gates had an ample supply of power outlets at tables or chairs, but not in the walls. I've flown American a few times in the last year and was very disappointed that they had hardly any power outlets at their gates. Got me to thinking that it's the airlines that can set up their gates however they want.

The same idea as putting armrests in those terminal benches so people can't lay down and take a nap. It is frustrating as all get out though.
