Royal Jordanian Bans Electronic Devices From US Flights

Royal Jordanian Bans Electronic Devices From US Flights

The official says no American carriers are impacted by the ban, which will involve devices larger than a mobile phone.

Jon Ostrower, an aviation reporter at CNN, posted Monday that the ban appears to affect not just Royal Jordanian, but more than a dozen Middle Eastern and African-based airlines flying to and from the U.S.

"Following instructions from the concerned USA departments, we kindly inform our dearest passengers departing to and arrive from the United States that carrying any electronic or electrical device on board the flight cabins is strictly prohibited", the statement read.

Royal Jordanian Airlines told passengers on flights to and from the U.S. Monday that because of a directive from the U.S. government, no laptops and other electronic devices could be brought into the cabin of a plane.

He can't deal with all these demands at the match , what matches? "So I think in the fourth year , he deserved to be sacked". But Mourinho believes such adversity can bring United - and supporters - closer together. "We thought it was really hard".

If Royal Jordanian's tweet proves accurate, details of the ban have not even reached the airline's NY sales offices.

The official told CNN that there is a security concern regarding passengers boarding non-stop flights to the USA from some specific countries. Such items must be checked on flights to and from New York, Chicago, Detroit and Montreal.

Hours after it first tweeted the information, however, the tweet was deleted.

A spokesperson for Homeland Security would not comment on the potential security precautions, but said the department would "provide an update when appropriate". "Cellular phones and medical devices needed during the flight are excluded from the ban". "However, what seems certain is that Royal Jordanian wasn't misinterpreting some policy, but rather there's some intelligence that's about to change travel for a lot of people". The TSA referred all questions to the DHS.
