Thai Airways bans 2015 - 2017 Macbook Pros - both carry on and checked luggage

Recommended Posts

Can the battery still overheat if it is taken out of the laptop?

How are they planning to enforce this ban? I assume they will ask each passenger on check-in if they carry a Macbook Pro with them? If I say no and I do have one in my carry on how are they supposed to know about that? I find it hard to believe that they will ask each and every passenger during check-in to show them their Laptop....

And even if they do, how do they know it is not a 2018 or 2019 Model, given that they look exactly the same? And does anybody at THAI actually read the Directive in which it actually says that only Macbook Pro's with certain Serial Numbers and which had their batteries not replaced yet are banned? (Assuming of course that the above reporting is correct in which it says that ALL 2015-2017 Models would be banned....) 

Questions over questions.......

They should see on x-ray of checked in bags prior to check in at DMK. And when you get your carry on x-rayed.

Don't think SVB has the same system though.

That may get interesting.
I own a MB Pro 13" from 2016......
Just think about the highly skilled and professional staff at those security checkpoints.....
Can they tell a 13" MBP from a 15" MBP? Don't think so.

So it will be a sweeping ban on all mac laptops, I doubt Airlines will have the time to go thru every pc.
