FAA bans Samsung Galaxy Note 7 from all airplanes, threatening criminal charges for noncompliance
In a highly unusual move, the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration on Oct. 14 banned all Samsung Galaxy Note 7s from airplanes, going so far as to threaten that it will bring criminal charges or assess fines against passengers who flout the regulation. The ban went into effect Oct. 15 at noon Eastern time. It will apply to carry-on and checked luggage, and it will be implemented on both domestic flights and all flights to and from the United States. Phones also may not be shipped as air cargo.
