Try under the Seat?

James Robertson’s Blog mentions how he hates flying foreign airlines because they don’t have a power adapter.
Now, I understand the geek fascination with using all your electronic gadgets on the plane… however I tend not to most of the time although I guess if I had a programming project I might get lost in it HOWEVER….
I flew on JAL a little over a month ago (Chicago->Tokyo) and I remember asking the flight attendant if there was a power outlet and she kindly mentioned look under your seat. However, you needed a cigarette adapter to plug into (which I had not bothered to pick up before leaving). Perhaps some planes don’t have this feature but jeeze before you complain about not having power (and frankly not having electricity is a nice wake up call to doing something else besides doing something relies on electricity) look under the seat.
