United Airlines is Installing Charging Docks For Apple's iPhones and iPods

United Airlines Charges For Bags, But Will Charge Your iPod

This makes me a little less bitter at United for charging $15 per checked bag: the airline is installing iPod and iPhone docks on its airplanes. Not only will you be able to charge your battery at your seat, you'll be able to scroll through your music and videos from the seat back's screen! Don't watch from that silly little screen, watch from behind somebody's head!

The first few flights to boast the Apple connectivity will be transatlantic, and will sadly be for first-and business-class passengers. That had better not last, or my forgiveness for the checked-bag fee will quickly depart.

It sounds like Panasonic is doing the financing for the dock installations, so financially, it's unrelated to charging the bags, I think.

Not that I'm complaining... but buh? Why bother if they're hurting financially?

I don't understand this. If the airlines are so poor they have to charge us to check our bags, why spend the money to install ipod docks???
