Galaxy Note 7 banned in US Airlines? – FAA

As a rule of FAA, it doesn’t favor to allow things that can get the plane crashed or anything else happens for obvious reasons. If you were not on Mars recently, then you may know that many handsets of Note 7 are blasting while putting to charge.So, the FAA got together with the TSA and major U.S. airlines this weekend to determine whether the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 should be banned on flights.

The shipping of the Galaxy Note 7 are on halt, and also they have stopped selling the handset. To protect more of such cases, the company is now exchanging the Galaxy Note 7 with other phones such as the Galaxy S7.

This afternoon, an Australian hotel room caught on fire thanks to a Note 7. It is also advised by many people to exchange the Note 7 right now. 

“The FAA and the Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration are working on guidance related to this issue. If the device is recalled by the manufacturer, airline crew and passengers will not be able to bring recalled batteries or electronics that contain recalled batteries in the cabin of an aircraft, or in carry-on and checked baggage.”-FAA 

Meanwhile, the FAA has yet to make a decision about whether to allow the Galaxy Note 7 to board a plane. What the FCC does with the device is largely up to Samsung. The manufacturer has not officially recalled the phone, as pointed out by Consumer Reports. If it decides to do so, government entities will need to get involved, and anyone selling the device can be criminally charged. If the Galaxy Note 7 is recalled, the device will not be allowed inside an aircraft whether carried by passenger or crew. The phablet will also be prohibited from entering an aircraft as carry-on or checked luggage.
