BHX to CHC with Emirates. USB charging??

Hi all

I am booked on EK038 & EK418 in January on a 777-300ER.

I've read on the Emirates web site that newer planes have USB charger's in the seat backs, but it doesn't actually say that our plane will(or won't), which I suppose will be pot-luck

Anyone else travelled over to N.Z recently who can say whether they had them?

It will make my decision as to whether I buy an E-reader or Tablet :)

Thanks in advance.

Try here

flyertalk.com/forum/emirates-skywards-490/

and do note that sometimes EK change their aircraft on this route from a 777 2 class to a 777 3 class which may/or may not have the seat back point in C class.

Just to update, we had a USB charger on the newer plane which was the Dubai to Christchurch leg only, both ways.

There are 2 USB ports but there is also a universal charger port to charge the devices. I think emirates meant for the USB ports to be used to see pictures. You can also save you ICE preferences so if you take another flight you can carry one where you left off
