    Writing this from 34,000' right now... and watching my battery drain. I searched to no avail.

    I have the airline adapter and bought the Magsafe > Magsafe 2. I have used this a couple times with my new rMBP and while it doesn't charge, it at least doesn't discharge.

    Today I'm plugged into seat power and... nothing. I have the green light, so it's getting juice, but there's no charge or "not charging" or anything. The machine is acting no differently than if I was on pure battery.

    Any ideas???

    Perhaps your seat plug isn't working, or isn't activated.

    I don't think he'd get the green light in that case

    If it US Airways, the plugs don't connect to power. The jacks are there, but the actual power delivery stuff was stripped out a few years ago on most of their domestic fleet.

    As an update: I had to reset the machine twice but it ended up working finally. The seat power is active on American's 767-200s, there was just something wonky about the computer.

    I blame gremlins.
