    Earlier, passengers were forbidden from turning them on, or charging them, but as of noon ET today the Note 7 is banned from all US airlines: they cannot be brought on board as carry on or checked luggage. The Samsung Note 7 cannot travel by air.

    Does anyone expect that the TSA will be able to distinguish between the various Samsung models? This is effectively a ban on anything by Samsung that looks like a Note 7..

    So in like 95% of test cases people were able to smuggle guns, knives, and drugs on planes but they're going to keep a certain model of phone off of planes? :jj:

    Militant Muslim terrorists are now being outfitted with vests with 20 strategically sewn Samsung Note 7 phones. Commercial pilots are being instructed to ditch at sea since there is no known way to prevent them from exploding.
