So you prefer your onboard explosives in the cabin as opposed to down below. Gotcha!👍🏻 We received your memo and greatly value your input. All of our employees are important to us. Keep up the great work team, inshallah.

According to the FAQ on the EK foip we're not affected
Uniformed operating crew can carry personal electronic devices on board the passenger cabin. Ensure that if you use your personal device, you do so discreetly, away from customers. Please comply with your departmental policy for using personal electronic devices on board.

Flights OUT OF USA are not affected at all. It is a ban on cabin electronics out of the named airports only. TSA have no ban . And it only applies to passengers. Had zero problems leaving USA with the usual iPad, Tablet etc

First day of the ban, arrivals into USA was a nightmare for ground staff.
Repatriating electronics with their rightful owners took hours.
Many of EKs pax can't read their own names on luggage tags in English alphabet.

Sounds like EK are just using it as an excuse and as a way of not loosing face. The unmentionable just down the road have stated the ban has made little difference to bookings.

Yep. I highly doubt that not being to bring a laptop into the cabin cut the demand to somewhere like say, Seattle, in half. Not with all the Canindians just up the road.

Face-saving: what they do best.

This ban is a knife in the side of the airline. I just suffered through it on a flight to USA. 102 boxes in total, approx 75 J & F pax had to cue for 30-40 min after leaving the comforts of the lounge to check them, then the inevitable rush at the other end to be first in line to collect. There is no way premium pax. will put up with this for any length of time, if there are other options. Not to mention the inconvience of not having your personal laptop on a wifi equipped aircraft. It's ridiculous. Given the logistics of this whole process, I will say the airline has adapted well.

Agreed. Need a new delay code. CP - collecting PEDs.

I flew 215 the other day. Due to collecting PEDs, we arrived one hour late. This cannot continue without altering our success.
