Not the new MacBooks and MacBook Pros - Apple changed the connector,  
and so far have apparently refused to license it to third parties,  
nor have they come out with an airline power adaptor of their own.

So, on the rare occasions I find DC in-flight power available, I use  
an AC inverter with the airline power adaptor and then plug my  
MacBook's AC adaptor into that.  As others have indicated, AC is in  
fact available on Lufthansa in business class and higher.

Any information security mechanism, process, or procedure which can
be consistently defeated by the successful application of a single
class of attacks must be considered fatally flawed.
