Sponsored outlets in the walkways of the concourses:
You and your laptop may sigh with relief now.
Sharing the outlet is good business karma.
The sponsor in this case is Chase, The Bank Formerly Known
as Chase Manhattan and later as JP Morgan Chase. Each
outlet plate has a blue Chase banner running down the wall
from about eye level right down to the pair of outlets.
The banners caught my eye, so I guess they worked. Eventually
the gimmick will wear out its novelty -- perhaps it already
has for other flyers, or elsewhere in the country; I don't
fly often -- but I thought it was cute. Funny how changes
in technology have made something as mundane as an open
outlet so valuable!
Oh, and thanks to cashing in some very old, expiring frequent
flyer miles, I flew first class for the first time in a long
time, from Indianapolis to John Wayne/Orange County. It
wasn't quite like the
in which Jerry and Elaine experience the different sides of
traveling first class and coach, but it was very, very nice.
A good addition to my vacation.
