US May Soon Ban Laptops In Cabins On Flights From Europe

Airlines brace for expansion of US laptop ban to European flights

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.

"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.

Iran's president attacks rival's background in judiciary
Khamenei is also unhappy with Rouhani's economic performance and said the government should have done more to tackle unemployment. The Iranian officials unanimously called the missile tests "inalienable right" of the country to boost deterrent power.

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.
