Anyone know if they have power in the seats on their planes?

Still exists in the US on routes without nonstop LCC competition.
Not going to change anything in the TLV market until there's a nonstop competitor.
What will need to happen in order for that to happen? A more efficient aircraft? Which US gateway might it happen with? PHL? I would imagine JFK, or even EWR are just too high cost in order to be able to make low-cost work on this route.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

JetBlue would have to buy a A350/787 type aircraft. Sadly, we're probably a decade away from that happening.

BWI would gladly welcome a LCC.

If only WNs 737s would make it. Sadly I don't see them ever going bigger than the 737.

Would a backpack be considered under the free carry on size or do you think they would measure it?

They probably have a box where they require you to put it in, if it fits good, if not it's not good

10 KG is a nice amount to bring on, 2 KG more than other airlines
I can't remember the last time I let an airline weigh or measure my carry on. They only weigh your carry on at check in counters. If I have no suitcase, I skip the counter altogether and if I have a suitcase to check in, I leave my carry on with someone or on the side while I check in and that way they never weigh it.

The closest I got to them catching me was when I flew Wizz air intra Europe. The girl by the gate looked suspiciously at my giant carry on which was significantly larger and heavier than allowed and asked incredulously: Did they measure you bag upstairs. I gave her a huge grin and responded enthusiastically: Of course! It didn't fit at first and I stuffed it and stuffed it until it fit!

It seems you've never flown an airline that tags carry ons and actively check for them at the gate

I think when I flew Transaero they weighed it.

I've had carry-on weighed by gate.

(I had left carry-on on side by check-in, but the agent noticed it and made me weigh it on scale. Of course, it was overweight. She tried forcing me to pay, but I refused and said I would leave it by a friend in city and wouldn't be taking it. Of course, she knew I was lying, and warned me that I would get stopped by gate and wouldn't be able to bring it onto plane. I said thank you, left, went through security, and then transferred half the stuff from the carry-on into duty free bags. When I got to gate, waiting there was non other than the witch from check-in, salivating over her prey. She grabbed bag from me, weighed it, and was crushed when it was within the weight limit.)
Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.

LOL

I've had bags weighed at the gate by AirAsia.
