Re: New restrictions

Once again the mail is scaremongering with the headline about devices being FULLY CHARGED

Reading further into the article, it appears that your device just has to turn on

Official advice to travellers from the Department for Transport had previously been limited to those ‘flying to the USA’. It now affects those ‘flying to and from the UK’, and states: ‘Make sure your electronic devices are charged before you travel. If your device doesn’t switch on, you won’t be allowed to bring it on to the aircraft.’

I would love to know what percentage of people travel with devices that Have no power in them at all

You beat me on this one!

Exactly what one gets from the Daily Mail.

What would happen if your battery was flat?

It has happened to me, be it on the odd occasion, but your OH may be chatting non-stop to her MIL and her phone's flat, so she's now a suspect terrorist (dread the thought)?

None now it would seem!

Seriously. they must offer some sort of holding system so your devices can be reclaimed on your return. Can you imagine the outcry if valuable electronic equipment were to be confiscated because the battery was flat?

Maybe they'll introduce quick charging points at extortionate cost for those of us who have gone flat by the time we get to the airport.

Re: New restrictions

It's getting high stakes isn't it.
200 people plus at risk if one bomb gets thru.

Don't blame the airports /airlines for trying to keep us safe .

What is a viable alternative?

Gadget free flying?
No precautions flying?

Some airlines offering to courier your device home at your cost.
Imagine the outcry if a plane goes down .
Malaysia all over again .
Keeping your device charged till security isn't a big pain is it .
Compared with the terrible alternative
