Airlines worldwide have started to ban the Samsung Galaxy Note 7
Quantas, Virgin, Air Berlin, Singapore Airlines and Austrian Airlines. Those are the first airlines that have released orders today, effectively banning the Galaxy Note 7 from being transported on any of their flights, not only to and from the USA but worldwide. German Lufthansa has banned the phone from being taken on any US-bound flights but has, so far, not released a worldwide ban yet. A Lufthansa spokesperson said that she is expecting a worldwide ban on any Lufthansa flight soon.
This may make it more difficult than ever for travelers currently carrying a Galaxy Note 7 to continue their journey. They may face fines and be denied boarding eventually. We are expecting more and more airlines to release similar statements in the coming days after the U.S Department of Transportation (DOT) has officially banned the Galaxy Note 7 from being transported on any flight within, to and from the USA yesterday.
