This may be a nit, but, you will _NEVER_ see AC power at any
In addition to all of the offered AC services others have mentioned,
some planes have power outlets for vacuum cleaners, typically behind a
small panel next to a door.
ISTR, these AC sockets are "airplane flavour" 115VAC @ 400Hz.

Use at your own peril, though I know at least one person who did run a Powerbook off one, and it survived (though I'm told that the PSU ran quite hot).
