With the increasing desire of adding more and more entertainment services on board aircrafts, I am wondering how much an airline can decide to add without worrying about the plane's electrical supply ? How much electrical power is generated by the average large airliner ? (767, 747-400) ? How much is needed for aircraft operations and how much is available for passenger confort (lights, video, galleys). For instance, if an airline wished to add outlets to allow every passenger to plug in their laptops, would that be possible ? And when personal LCD video systems are added to every seat on a 747, will that be possible without modifying the aircrafts electrical generators ?
