Via Heise Newsticker:
Virgin Atlantic Airlines restricts the usage of Dell- and Apple-laptops on board their flights, due to the current exploding-battery problem:
“As a result of the current problems being experienced by the Apple and Dell Corporations with some of the batteries fitted to some of their laptops, as a safety precaution and with immediate effect, customers wanting to use an Apple or Dell laptop on board can only do so if the battery is removed. Any removed or spare batteries must be individually wrapped/protected and placed in your Carry On Baggage. This is limited to two batteries per passenger.
In cabins where the seats are fitted with In Seat Power Supplies, leads/adapters will be offered. Where no ISPS is provided or no laptop leads/adapters are available, the use of Apple and Dell laptops is prohibited.
Virgin is in communication with Apple and Dell. As soon as this safety issue is resolved these restrictions will be lifted.”
Oh my,first the terrorists now Apple and Dell. What’s next? urine-samples before boarding the plane? You could’ve drunk those evil liquid explosives!
