FAA Bans Some 15-Inch MacBook Pros into Flights

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) announced in August that it was banning certain models of Apple’s MacBook Pro from being brought on board flights, whether as cargo, or in passengers’ carry-on luggage.

The recall, which Apple announced in June, applies to 15-inch MacBook Pro units primarily sold between September 2015 and February 2017. Apple said the battery in the affected laptops can overheat, potentially swelling or igniting.

In a statement, the FAA said it was “aware of the recalled batteries that are used in some Apple MacBook Pro laptops” and reminded airlines to follow safety guidelines issued in 2016 about consumer electronics with recalled batteries.

According to those guidelines, electronics with recalled batteries should not be allowed on flights as cargo or in carry-on luggage. That would apply to the affected MacBook Pros. In addition to the FAA, a number of airlines and regulatory bodies throughout the world have issued guidance relating to the hazardous laptops.(source: businessinsider.com)
