    But be CAREFUL! Some of these AC mains outlets have 220V. So, if you are from the USA and your hair dryer has the USA plug, and is rated at 110VAC, and you use that handy plug adapter that converts from North America style to a UK outlet, you will have an unpleasant and very exciting surprise after your shower.

    Always check the voltage as well as getting the correct adapter. A "transformer" can be used to convert 220 mains to 110V mains, or the other way round.

    Most computers and phone chargers are OK with a wide range of AC input voltages. Check to make sure before plugging in.

    Handy reference:

    Less profit and more investment certainly offers much more comfort and commitment to users. Unfortunately, this happens everywhere, not just with aviation companies, in case the general chaos was clear because it is a top company in the middle of international aviation, but one has to think better about the strategies applied. Good reflection, @Neil Hughes.

    This is not a new problem. I remember working in a private bank where their sydtems could not orientate the paper in a laserjet2, which was becoming old hat by that time. Then there was the millenium bug, which luckily was not as widespread as feared. It os difficult to build a new system in tandem with a levacy system as it has to work pwrfectlt immediately - and ifvyou have ever tried building even a simple database the wrong input from the wrong person at the right time can really screw it up..

    @Phillip Hubbell As a trvel writer I fly far too much and often on low cost carriers. When you sell seats cheap ( and the paying public want it cheap) the frills go...simple. Spoke to a senior Jetstar guy one ( Australian low cost carrier) who told me that the gross profit ( not nett) on any given seat is $3.96c . Slim margins, no frills...simple. On short haul flights its really OK or , perhaps , take the train !

    I have a MAJOR phobia of flying. It's stopped me from visiting wonderful places overseas and even within the US if the flight will be longer than 3.5 hours. 3.5 hours seems like 2 days when you have an extreme phobia of flying. One item on my bucket list: Interview people who work for a certain airline, get advice on how to do a well crafted interview (video interview, that is), promote the video so it goes viral and maybe get a free flight out of it with a flying mentor (hey a gal can dream, right?) Phase two- video & photograph a specific hotel, their guests, sales person, manager and showcase it in exchange for a largely reduced rate. People with a fear of flying tend to look up airline ratings. Qantas rated the highest, so I guess my first overseas destination would be Australia ;-) It's ok to laugh, I'm laughing too, knowing this phobia is stupid but something I can't seem to overcome. Appears I may be too late for taping/advertising. Check out business class on Qantas

To which the man replied "Why not, you did it the last time I flew with your airline!" Bah Dum!

    I am 6 feet 8 inches tall. The airlines hate me. They have reduced both the airplanes and the seats to the point where I have to endure physical pain to fly...yet I still have to fly. There was a time where they would take a little pity and seat me in the exit row but now they want extra money for that and companies in their effort to cut costs won't pay for it. So out of pocket or pain...my choice.

    Thank you Steve Blakeman for sharing your relevant approach. Few industries have changed how people live and experience the world as much as the invention of the airplane and its ability to travel fastly as safely, in an intensely competitive market. It’s one of the enduring ironies of the airways companies that actually move passengers from one place to another, the most crucial link in the chain, struggle to break even, when most all people (passengers) expects it as an amazing and exceptional experience, so different in its reality at the Mach speed Digital Era.

    @Steve Blakeman This article covers much of the issues I've noticed while flying, it's been great to read that I'm not that complainy after all. I'm trying to remember when the quality of the flights started decreasing that much, because I can still think about how the airplane's food wasn't that bad or getting to the airport was just about excitement and joy. Now every time we are called to board there's a pointless line of people. Passengers are called in order of rows and seats but most of them just go ahead without taking into consideration the organization just because of what you just said above, having space for their bags on the overhead bins.

    Great article @Steve Blakeman. I cannot talk with any extensive experience of first class flying however I have until recently had pilots in my family and this process of falling out of love with air travel has been going on for longer than I can remember. Like allot of other industries that had their heyday around the the same time, It just didn't maintain the fashionable, exotic maybe even sex appeal that is portrayed in Catch me if you can. Consider the advertising industry - the last firm I visited, nor it's staff hardly reminded me of Madmen. Also, that photo of the food has made me appreciate the pasta in my fridge so much more.
