Those Old US Airways Planes Kinda, Sorta Have Power Ports After All. Not Really

Many moons ago Doug Parker, Scott Kirby and the gang at US Airways went through a cleansing process where they threw off pretty much everything they could on their planes to save on weight (ultimately leading to fuel savings). They also chose not to install power ports on those older planes to save on weight.

It’s hard to say they made the right decision, because customers crave power when they fly so they can power laptops, smartphones, iPads and more.
