    I do not know what is offered on an airplane.
    Different airline and different classes of cabin have different facilities.

    Actually any 5v ( or a little over 5v up tp 5.5v) source with USB output is OK, so you can use the USB cable to charge.

    You just need to have your iPad/iPod adapter. The type of pin/socket will depend on the airline you fly, which you should be able to find out through the airline's website. Also, depending on the airliner's configuration, normally all the seats in first and business should have an outlet, but not all seats in economy may have an outlet.

    (This is my iPad charging on Singapore Airlines business class. The seat next to mine was vacant.)

    One won't charge their accessories on a plane. One should charge them before they leave on the trip. Luckily the iPad and iPhone batteries will be fine when you get to your destination.
    You either contribute to or take from society. Be a blessing.

    Once you have booked your flight (or before your book it), look here -- Airline Seating Charts - Best Airplane Seats - SeatGuru. It will tell you if a power port is available among other features of each seat.

    Yes - but when you are flying long distance, which if you include waiting and transit times can be twenty hours or more, having the werewithal to charge the device is definitely useful.

    I have had good luck with a Zagg Sparq external battery. It is a little larger than a deck of cards and will fully charge an IPad once. That should give you between 18 and 20 hours of use.
