More gadget bans on flights?!?!

Article published on SLR Lounge indicates that there is a list of 13 countries that if you’re flying from (to the USA) then an electronic gadget ban (in cabin ie carry on) will be enforced. The list includes laptops, gaming devices and cameras to name a few. To get the full story, head on over to SLR Lounge and read the full article HERE.

I don’t know about you but I think that really sucks regardless what country you’re coming from. Isn’t the pre boarding security checks and xray machines suppose to clear all our gear?

So far I haven’t read anything else about this, hope it doesn’t happen….
