Coming back from a conference yesterday, I noticed a new feature Southwest is offering to tech-hungry passengers: power stations to charge your electronics! There was a lounge area with super-comfy chairs separated by small tables that contain both regular power outlets and USB plugs. I also saw tall worktables that offered up power to those who needed deskspace to spread out. My iPhone was running low on juice but the USB charger fixed that in just a few minutes.
After years of scrounging for power while waiting at the airport, this was a lovely surprise. I have to say, hats off to Southwest for such a convenient solution to a frustrating problem.
Now if only they would add power plugs inflight…(hint hint!).
