I wasn't sure where to put this, but I found this discussion on the BBC with regards to a general ban on all electronics except for cell phones in the cabin. Not a good thing for those of us who want to take our good gear overseas.

Embrace those who seek the truth; run from those who claim to have found it.

Well if you are flying British Airways I wouldn't worry about it. They don't seem to be able to fly at the minute.

I've refused to fly since early 2000's. Back in the 80's & 90's it was a pleasure to fly. Now, I can't stomach it, being squished in, waiting forever, being treated like some kind of criminal, it's like a modern bovine slaughter house. Just to go from one state to another, or sometimes, from one end of the same state to the other. I just drive these days. Sigh...

Very best,

Hard not to fly when the destination is Botswana for instance,.

I moved to General talk as this impacts lots of photo genres, including in my case, wildlife.

OLD NEWS that electronics are banned when flights originated in the Middle East countries listed. What has been recently under consideration is the possibility that all flights originating in EU having a similar ban!

On May 17, American and European officials met in Brussels to discuss the Trump administration’s proposed ban on laptops and tablets on trans-Atlantic flights, and according to reports, but the fortunate outcome was that the measure for flights from EU to be affected won’t be implemented anytime soon.

A joint statement from the European Commission and the Department of Homeland Security said officials will meet again next week in Washington, DC “to further assess shared risks and solutions for protecting airline passengers, whilst ensuring the smooth functioning of global air travel.” I don't think the issue is fully put to bed.

Eventually... no baggage, and everyone flies naked. Won't stop some German pilot from flying you into a mountain though.

You can die at home in a rocking chair. Most of us worry way too much about things with infinitesimal chances of actually happening. I get a real kick out of my mother in law wearing her seat belt, while smoking. THAT is funny. I believe it is about 30% of all automobile passengers will be in an accident in their lifetimes. About 95% of lung cancer victims are smokers.

With respect to flying, you take the same chance of dying every time you drive 13 miles, or board a commercial airliner. Lots of people won't fly. My guess is all of them regularly drive 13 miles.

Without naming names or pointing fingers, I'm sure that policy change is right up SOMEBODY'S alley. ;-)a

Deja vu! Not so long time ago similar threads happen. I don't mind mobile phone and my no electronics film Leica.

More comprehensive ban? All USA international flights? I don't see how something in the hold is safer, except perhaps the detectors are possibly better for finding a device.

Baggage 'handlers' manage to break anything that goes in the hold!

That is why I don't bring clothes to wear on my trip. I bring multi-purpose padding that I can later reuse as clothes.

That will still leave a hiding place or two. The primary one about halfway down the body.

I do NOT want to stand in line and watch TSA probing that hiding place.

Well I think I would rather stand in line and watch then be the one being probed. But each to their own I suppose, each to their own.

Maybe that rather controversial reviewer of cameras knows something after all?:rolleyes:
