No Power Outlets?

Explorer C

Hi  Southwest -


I was recently on 2 flights, one from SW and one from American.  On the American flight, there were power outlets to charge my phone so I didn't completely drain the battery.  On the SW flight, there were none.   Are there plans to add power outlets?  It makes the flight so much more conveinent.  Especially the long flights like the one I have coming up.   


Thank you,


Concerned to fly

Nope. Southwest has said many times that they have made the decision to forgo power ports or any other equipment at the individual seat as a means of reducing weight and keeping fares low. I don't expect them to change so purchase one of those USB battery packs, they're very small and can provide multiple charges to a phone or other devices.
