and you will NEVER see this service again until there is a monetary incenctive to offer said service. So.. why is this still a discussion?

This may be a nit, but, you will _NEVER_ see AC power at any, let alone all of
the seats. Seat power that works with the iGo system is DC and is not
conventional 110 AC.

It's quite likely that on a grander scale of things, it's better economy that the few people who want to use their laptop the whole flight, do get two batteries, than doing the investment of putting AC power in all seats.

Otoh, more batteries on planes increases the risk of fire due to exploding batteries happening in the plane :P
