No-fly zone suggested for Galaxy Note 7


Banned on European flights now

The pre-flight safety announcement for my flight back from Paris last weekend included a warning that Glaxy Note 7 users must turn their phones off for the duration of the flight and could not charge the phones during the flight. Also anyone with a GN7 in their luggage must declare the fact before the doors were closed. Someone stuck their hand up. One hour delay waiting for their luggage to be off-loaded, searched and the offending phone put into the hand of the owner.

iPhone users looking smug at this point.
