It goes without saying that the cut throat world of airlines have seen many mergers and acquisitions in the past, as the entire industry consolidates itself with the emergence of various factors – the higher costs of operation, the emergence of low cost airlines, the works! Airlines too, will need to keep up with the competition by renewing their fleet from time to time, and not all planes feature built-in power points for the road warrior to continue working in a cramped economy class seat. Japan Airlines intends to offer something that will help separate it from the rest of the crowd – First Class passengers of that airline aboard domestic flights in Japan can take advantage of in-flight mobile battery rentals.
Yes sir, at the moment, there are no seats onboard JAL’s domestic flights that come with power outlets, hence this particularly new service that enables passengers to take advantage of juicing up their power hungry devices so that they will be charged with more power upon your arrival than at your departure.
This rental mobile battery happens to be a JTT (Japan Trust Technology) MobilePower MP-16000 that sports high-power 5V/2.1A output, so that you can even opt to juice up your tablet apart from just the iPhone.
