and (2) it can be used gate to gate (unlike laptops, phones and tablets don't have to be shut down and stowed for takeoff and landing).

That is an extremely limited period of time that a computer cannot be used. Do you really plan on doing some essential editing tasks during those minutes? Especially landings, when most of us are focused on preparing to get off the plane as quickly as possible. . .

Agreed, but I fly a tremendous amount, so this time does add up it is more than 30 minutes per flight for taxi-out, takeoff, climb to 10,000 plus descent from 10,000, approach, landing, and taxi-in.  At present, I carry both an iPad mini for reading/videos/etc and a MBP for tasks requiring more capability. My original thought was to replace those two devices with an iPad Pro to cover everything. But it would seem that the photo editing capabilities sacrificed in using an iPad Pro instead of a MBA or MBP may be too great.
