    Hello, Im traveling to Europe for work in a couple days. I went to my local Apple store and bought one of their airline power adapters. The sales guy wasnt to sure it would work on to many planes. Im flying SAS on a Scare Bus A340. Anyone have any ideas as to whether this thing is going to work for me?

    Thanks.

    It should work on that plane. Mine has worked on many and works great! It will not charge the computer, just supply power to it.

    For an SAS Airbus A340-300, you will need to be seated in First Class, Business Class, or Economy Plus. Standard Economy does NOT have power adapter ports on the seats.

    How it works is depending on which one the airplane uses, whether the cigarette adapter shaped or the non-adapter shaped (without the attachment), you just insert it in the socket on the seat, usually on the hand rest side or underside, and plug the other end onto your computer.

    The seat map says they have AC power, so why bother with the POS airline adapter?

    I flew Asiana a couple years back and the diagram says they have AC power, but they have the airline adapters.

    Scared by wire flight control systems.

    Made by three SOCIALIST countries.

    Do YOU like the way the US postal service is run?

    How'd YOU like them making your airplanes?

    HA!

    I flew airbus to London a while back. Agree with you Hated it. Even JetBlue felt better to me. They are really air 'buses".
