USB ports at all Economy international seats?

I'm trying to figure out if there will definitely be USB ports at my Economy Discomfort seat for an upcoming flight to GIG. I tried using the search feature here first, I promise My flight details say yes, but clicking on the aircraft info (767-400) says no, only in BE and Economy Comfort. Does anyone know?

All widebodies - domestic and international - will have AVOD and USB ports at every seat by June '14. Within that set, the only aircraft that lack USB ports in coach today are the dozen or so as yet unreconfigured A332/A333.

Cool, so flight 60/61 (767-400) in early feb. should be fine and with the usb ports working, which is great news... nice to know that we can "charge" the gadgets and keep the baby entertained for such a long flight...

thanks

The screen usb are very limited in current output. Newer devices might not be chargable with them.

The underseat outlet in EC and console outlets in BE is more powerful and have not met a charging challenge from me yet.

Mods? Did something change?

The 777s only have power outlets, vice just USB, in rows 31-40. This has always been the case.

Be careful there. I haven't been in a 764 that had working power ports in other than a few of the first economy rows. Most of the pauper class doesn't have power at all.

The 763 and 747 refurb birds have a USB socket on the IFE screen of limited charging amperage.

The 764 and 777 IFE does not have the socket.
