FAA (Federal Aviation Administration) strongly warned passengers not to neither use nor charge battery for Galaxy Note 7 on planes as the phone has been decided to recall as a result of a battery fault. However, it seems that FAA won’t restrict carrying the phone onto the plane.
On 8th, FAA announced that “because of the recent accident involving Samsung Galaxy Note 7, FAA strongly suggests passengers to turn off their phones or not to charge them”.
FAA also suggested not to carry Note 7 into the checked baggage area.
Prior to FAA’s announcement, 3 airlines including Australian airlines Qantas, Jetstar, and Virgin Australia also warned passengers not to use or charge Galaxy Note 7.
Carry the phone onto planes has not been restricted, but the restriction against USB port connection or charging is not only applied on planes, but also in airports.
