Without trial. Some airlines indiscriminately ban Apple MacBook Pro laptops


In June, Apple withdrew a batch of 15-inch MacBook Pros that were sold between September 2015 and February 2017 due to the threat of battery fire, and a month and a half later, the US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) just in case introduced a transportation ban in aircraft of these potentially dangerous specimens. Despite the fact that the FAA recommendation is not mandatory for US airlines, some took the potential threat so seriously that they decided not to trifle and put a complete ban on the transport of MacBook Pro laptops, regardless of a possible battery problem. Bloomberg reported several cases where passengers with MacBook Pro laptops were denied boarding a flight.

In particular, Virgin Australia introduced a ban on the transport of MacBooks in checked baggage. The notes on the Dangerous Goods section of the airline’s official website say in black and white that all Apple MacBooks can only be carried in carry-on baggage.


Such a solution looks very strange, given that the problem affects only a certain number of 15-inch MacBook Pros from a particular batch, while other MacBooks do not experience such problems with overheating. Virgin Australia, on the other hand, allows you to carry your MacBook in your hand luggage and use during your flight.

But Qantas Airways went even further and impose an even tougher ban. It not only prohibits the transportation of 15-inch MacBook Pros in checked baggage, but also their use during the flight.

“Due to the recall announcements issued by Apple, all 15-inch Apple MacBook Pros must be carried in their hand luggage and be turned off until further notice,” a Qantas spokesman told ZDNet.

It’s clear that Quantas and others are visually challenging to distinguish the 15-inch 2015 MacBook Pro from other models and it’s even more difficult to recognize the specific model to be revoked. To do this, you must first find out the serial number of the device (it is on the device’s case or in the Apple menu on the computer), and then check it on the special service page on the Apple website. But they could well get rid of the limitations of the MacBook Pro with Touch Bar 2016 and later, which are not dangerous and have a number of obvious visual differences.
