Sometimes it’s the little things that make a huge difference. Those who fly US Airways have had the small but incredibly useful perk of powerstrips for their laptops (as a Continental guy who runs out of laptop power after 2.5 hours, this is a nice little benefit). WAS a nice little benefit, I should say. The airline announced that it will remove the powerstrips from its planes as a cost cutting measure (though they will remain on its trans-Atlantic A330s). No power for you.
