US May Soon Ban Laptops In Cabins On Flights From Europe

Any expansion of the ban could impact US carriers such as United Airlines Delta Air Lines Inc and American Airlines Group

A French official who was briefed about Friday's meeting said the Americans announced they wanted to extend the ban, and the Europeans planned to formulate a response in coming days.

According to Reuters , the usa government is reviewing how to make sure lithium batteries that get stored in the luggage don't explode during flights.

The United Kingdom followed suit after the US announced its ban on large electronics by issuing its own prohibition on electronic devices on flights coming from Turkey, Lebanon, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Jordan and Tunisia. The department is constantly evaluating threats and said it aims to protect travelers but doesn't want to cause "unnecessary disruption". Under the new administration, arrivals to the US are forecast to drop slightly to 84.2 million for the period.

Passengers traveling with affected devices will be required to store them in their checked baggage.

Donald Trump Putting US Intelligence Ties At Risk
Trump, said in a television interview Tuesday that he "would like a little less drama from the White House on a lot of things". If the President comes to a considered judgment that something should be revealed, it is "his call to make, constitutionally".

"We'll likely expand the restrictions", Lapan said in a statement. The formal announcement is expected to come Thursday.

Rumours that the US Department for Homeland Security will ban electronic devices from the cabins of aircraft flying from Europe to America have intensified.

The head of the International Air Transport Association said recently that the electronics ban is not an acceptable or effective long-term solution to security threats, and said the commercial impact is severe.

Banning electronic devices on flights from Europe to the United States would be a big deal.

Trump White House enters a new state of denial
Senate minority leader Chuck Schumer recently urged the White House to publish the transcripts of Trump's meeting with Lavrov . Comey said he replied that "I agree he is a good guy" but said nothing to Trump about limiting the investigation.

Numerous flights are operated by US airlines such as Delta, United and American, or their European partners.

Like, really big: The number of flights from Europe to the US - more than 350 a day - make it the world's busiest global traffic corridor. Devices with such batteries have started fires aboard aircraft before, but no one would be able to extinguish the flames if a fire were to start in the cargo hold. However, the ban might even affect flights from the United Kingdom to U.S. according to a European official.

Air France-KLM Group and Deutsche Lufthansa AG are among carriers to say they're making preparations for the moratorium on devices, including tablets and games consoles, to be expanded to their hubs after initially targeting Mideast and African airports.
