I believe Apple devices may trickle charge off a 500mA USB port if they are in standby mode. Not sure if that is true with the non-intelligent airplane USB ports though. You may need to trick the Apple device with a couple 49.9K and 75K ohm resistors as documented here to present +2.0V on the D+ and D- USB lines.
