UPDATE: 

US authorities have secretly required airlines from 13 nations to forbid passengers from carrying any electronic or electrical device larger than a cellphone. 

The new edict was distributed in an email described as “confidential” from the US transportation safety administration (TSA) on Monday.

The requirement forbids passengers from bringing laptops, iPads, Kindles and even cameras larger than mobile phones into the cabin. All such devices must be checked.

Saudi Arabia’s Saudia Airlines and Royal Jordanian airlines are among the affected countries; the full list has not been revealed to the affected airlines themselves.

Surely they just mean turning them off? How can they expect hundreds of thousands of people not to bring mobiles or laptops?

Your joke doesn't translate here on a serious topic. 

 

 

OT...

I really want to understand this teams logistics and understanding of things. How exactly is this going to stop potential terrorism. Oh wait, it won't!

What terrorism threat though? 

I want this announcement now.

I'm inclined to believe this administration is making stuff up to impose their agenda on us.

This administration loves the surprise tactic. 

Imagine heading to the airport and having to leave all your devices.

This "terrorism threat" is probably bomb related or something.
