Thank you Airbus

It’s the details that matter. Yesterday, while flying with NWA from Amsterdam to Memphis, I found out that they changed the airphones plug in the new Airbus A330. No longer the funky two pin plug, but a normal 3,5mm jack plug. Of course, this is probably cheaper as it’s off-the-shelf, but this also means that you can now use your own headphones. So I could enjoy the movies with my nice $99 in-ear earplugs which also shut out all other noise. Thank you very much, Airbus! A fine minor detail that made those 9 hours much more comfortable.
