Whats all the so called confusion about ?

I remember many years ago, just after 7/11, when they used to ask you to switch on your devices at security, so why are the media making such a big thing about it ? Rolling Eyes

Actually I'd forgotten about that nod, but you're right.

I must admit that I hate flying and I'm glad we didn't book anything the week before these new security threats came about.

That was laptops.

Now it's potentially any electrical device: even non-battery.

Today someone was saying that very soon terrorists will be able to pack explosives in phones which are charged and active and also in other items like laptops and tablets - so the present checks will be rendered useless

The answer is follow my policy and simply don't fly Smile
