US bans tablets, notebooks aboard flights from Istanbul

Extremists plan to target planes with bombs in electronic devices, the United States warned on March 21, adding that it was duly banning passengers from carrying them in the cabin on flights from a number of airports, including Turkey’s Atatürk Airport.

Nine airlines have been given until March 25 to ban any device bigger than a cellphone or smartphone from the cabin.

Laptops, tablets and portable game consoles are affected by the ban – which applies to direct flights to the United States – but they may still be stowed in the hold in checked baggage.

Turkey’s national flag carrier Turkish Airlines on March 21 said it was one of the airlines subject to the U.S. ban.

“It has been decided by the relevant authorities that electronic devices larger than cell phones or smart phones should not be allowed inside the cabin,” on U.S.-bound flights, Turkish Airlines said in a statement, adding that medical devices were exempt from this.

So no more annoying games from the seat next to you,
or Porn being flashed across the screen.

Must admit on my last flight a woman on the other side of the isle had a tablet and was reading one of the raunchiest books I have ever seen and believe you me there was no holding back with the language being used.

You can always claim a replacement, but you have to do it before leaving the arrivals area, on one occasion I went into the luggage store at Birmingham airport and it's just about the largest store I have ever seen and they carry a stock of 'every known brand' ready for replacing damaged luggage.

True unless you fly back without your device.

Wonder if the airlines will reintroduce showing movies on the flights now they are taking that option away from us?

I have posted this before but with the `new` ban on laptops or `hold only` luggage I thought it worth posting again.
This is how easy it is to rob your suitcase so you dont even know.

I had cause to open a zip as in the video a few days ago but believe you me it wasn't very easy to re-close in the video.

With some of the newer suitcase's they now come with a re-designed 'double tooth zip to avoid the pen opening and closing problem.
