    Internet connectivity on Delta

    I have a HP Pavillion Notebook laptop and want to make sure that I can use the internet on the airplane. The website says that this:

    Connectivity

    Get more accomplished with your laptop by using Delta's battery-saving EmPower™ system. Outlets are available in BusinessElite and all classes of service on 777, 737-800, and 767-400 aircraft.
    Adapters

    An affordable, small, lightweight adapter makes it safe and easy to plug virtually any notebook computer into an in-seat power supply available on major airlines. It often includes an adapter for a standard car cigarette lighter and allows the user to conveniently recharge most notebook batteries during travel.
    Purchasing an Adapter

    When purchasing an adapter for your next Delta flight, check for compatibility with the EmPower system and your personal notebook brand. Adapters are available at many computer accessory retail stores, online, and for sale on international flights to Brazil, Chile, Europe, India, and Japan through Delta’s Duty Free program.


    So, they say that outlets are available on those series of planes, which fall into the ones I will be on. Does this mean that I have to go purchase an adapter to plug into the outlet? If so, would this one be appropiate? The people at HP told me it is:


    Will I be able to use my laptop in the hotel room or do I need a different kind of outlet that is acceptable with Aruba outlets?

    Check your itinerary, but I know for a fact that Delta has been flying 757's from Atlanta to Aruba. So...no connectivity there. You may have a shot at getting a seat back entertainment center though. Hit or miss on the plane.

    Electricity and outlets are the same in Aruba as the US. Connectivity in your room will be dependent upon where you are staying.

    I will be on a 757 plane, but the website says there is connectivity on:

    737-800

    Does this mean all planes from 737 -800 (i.e. 737, 738, 739, etc.) b/c then 757 would be included, right?

    I was always under the impression that 737 and 757s' were entirely different planes.

    I am not usually a big fan of using them as a resource, but this is logical http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boeing_757
    "Variants

    There are several variants of the 757. The 757-200 was the original, launched in 1979 with introduction into service in 1983. The 757-300 was launched in 1996 with introduction into service in 1999."

    I just checked my flight information. I'll be leaving Toronto to Atlanta on the CRJ 700. Then from Atlanta to Aruba I will be on the Boeing 757.

    http://www.delta.com/planning_reservations/plan_flight/aircraft_types_layout/crj-700/. It is a beautiful, but small jet. Imo, very roomy.

    Sometimes they will take carry-ons from you and have them waiting at the jet way as you get off the plane. Just be aware if you are traveling with valuables.

    Dh had some stuff lifted on an Icelandair flight years ago.

    Internet on Plane?

    It is my understanding that Delta and other airlines, only provide a place to plug your pc into their electrical system and you would therefore, not have to use your own battery.

    My laptop came with an airplane adapter and it comes in handy when traveling on long trips - especially when we travel several times per year to Portugal.
