A F or J seat would be nice? can you get it to work on A/C plugs?

If I recall my aviation days, aircraft power is usually around 115V 3P 400Hz or 28VDC for most equipment.
The seats might be different though

N171UA was my first ever (and only thus far) 747 flight ORD-LAX in 2004...ahh...if only I had somewhere to put it it would make a nice little vacation cottage.

And for those playing at home US household power is usually ~240VAC 1P split (120VAC from high to neutral on each leg, 240VAC phase-to-phase) 60Hz, so best case you'd likely need a frequency converter if they're AC powered seats.

Love it, although I suspect it might be above Canada Post's 65 lb maximum.Maybe I could have paid AC excess baggage fees, now that I'm no longer an AC Elite.
