    Normally this one, if your seat provides access to power. Otherwise you will have to rely on battery or a book or two.

    So how would I find out if this indeed works on Jetblue?

    Very rare to see powered seats on a domestic flight but I've never flown JetBlue..

    The most important thing is that you will have a very hard time using 17 inch MacBook Pro in coach

    I hope you have accidental damage cause that computer in coach is just asking to get water damaged

    A 17-inch laptop in coach is a really REALLY bad idea. If you place the laptop on the tray table then kiss your laptop goodbye as soon as the passenger in front of you reclines his or her seat. And there isn't enough room to comfortably hold the laptop in your lap and use it. I wouldn't even attempt to use a 15-incher.

    If you must browse the web, IM, etc while in the air then use your tablet or cell phone to do so. Or bring a printed book or magazine.

    I fly a lot and have never seen the availability to power a device like that, even on the 8hr flight to Italy that I took. What is wrong with using it on battery?

    +1 for SeatGuru.

    It will show you which seats on the aircraft have power outlets. That said, it doesn't look like any of Jetblue's fleet does. They only have two types of aircraft in their fleet -- the A320 & ERJ-190 -- so it's pretty easy to confirm.

    That doesn't mean that power outlets don't exist. That just means that you haven't had them on the airline/aircraft/seats you've flown on.

    Never had such problems. You might be flying the wrong airline if water is a constant problem.

    I don't think JetBlue has laptop power on their seats.

    On flights I have seen power. They are either standard plugs or EmPower plugs.

    I've used jetblue and I've never saw any power receptacle to plug my laptop. I think its a rarity on domestic flights, at least in business class. First class has them though jetblue doesn't have first class.
