Air New Zealand Adds USB Ports, iPod Connectors and Power Sockets To Each Seat

When you're flying 90 odd-hrs just to get to Auckland, you'd be wanting to charge your iPod or laptop at least once. Air New Zealand's done a major overhaul of its Boeing 777 plane, with sockets and USB ports galore.

It's not just for the suit-clad first class and business class passengers either. 11 Skycouches that turn into flat beds for two will make those weeks in the air fly past quickly, with the other seats providing extra leg room and comfort. But that's not the best bit—the power sockets, iPod connectors and USB ports on each seat will blow people's minds. You know, for that full 3-month long flight to Wellington. [Gadling via Engadget]
