    i just bought the airline power adaptor for my mb and i was wondering if anyone knows if it will work on northwest airlines or if anyone has any other tips for using it.

    In a Hell predominately of my own making
    Airline power adapters are useless on most domestic flights on the majors, as they don't have any power points. Not even in First.

    On most international-class aircraft (all widebodies, I-class 757's, etc.) it's still mostly a wash if you're flying a US-flagged carrier - they have standard 3-prong 110 outlets. Just use your brick.

    Check NWA's website, they should have information about what they provide.

    ok thanks, its going to be an international flight so if they do have a port for the adapter will it keep my mb charged for the whole flight?

    From the "Important Notes" on the Apple Store page for the cable:

    "Using the MagSafe Airline Adapter provides power for your computer but does not charge the battery."

    It sounds like it will keep your laptop from discharging the battery, but it won't recharge it.
