Folks,
I have a giant Nokia 1520 w/ 6" 1920x1080 screen and a set of USB headsets. I can easily make it several flights on the charge.

I'm glad WN isn't adding powerports. Make yourself responsable for keeping your devices powered.

I'm sure customers complain about lack of powerports.. who cares.. the current generation is the most entitled and spoiled rotten generation to live on this earth.

WN provides charging outlets in many of their gate areas, and was one of the first airlines to do so beginning several years back. In that regard, they haven't totally neglected customers.

It sucks for customers who just get off a transcon and have to rush to their connecting flight (due to no fault of their own) which could be another 2hrs in the air. Those customers won't have the time necessary to juice their items.

Honestly how many of these transcontinental passengers are on WN? WN's average flight is 860 miles. They do many more short flights than long ones.

Seat looks OK, as long as they keep the pitch (oh for the days of pre-evolve!). I think it should be impossible to make the seat cushion more uncomfortable than the current one   But another boring plain blue seat, the interior just looks a bit cold and uninviting, come on Southwest give us a little of the color and flair you once were, or are you know just a legacy without the change fee?

This is so pointless. Did they not just update their seats?

The seats look ugly to me ad very uncomfortable. Its realy time regulation is made on the legroom.

Hmmm.... kind of extreme to take this small discussion on seats and stretch to generational excesses and personal failures/responsibility. Don't you think?

My flights tend to be transcon. And to get the best pricing for my family we traveled SAN to MCO via BWI... that's a lot of time in the air. Not saying everyone does this or that my example should be the rule by which all decisions are made but I don't think the average stage length is a good choice either as many people are connecting to get to where they want to go.

Flair often costs money, and so do power ports (as well as the above mentioned maintenance element) so I would guess WN wants to avoid the extras when possible.

I've sat in the seats and they're comfortable, roomier and attractive. I much preferred them to what we've got now and as for legroom, there's NO difference. In fact, it seemed as if there was more legroom because I had my colleague crawl over me into the middle seat replicating someone returning form the lav and it was quite easy. Granted we both have core-strength so standing up from our seat was easy and we weren't holding onto the seat-backs for dear life as if we were about to fall off the top balcony of Trump Tower, but...I digress.

I like what I saw and experienced and look forward to the new seats and whatever new changes are coming to the cabins!

Yeah, it was a reach. Sorry, just flew the other day, with many people completely ignoring the flight attendants instructions and fiddling with their personal electronics. Too fresh in my mind and I went with it.

But I do stand by no powerports. Cords are just one more thing to trip over in an evac situation. And yes, everyone will plug in the second their pompy hits the seat.
