So people flying RJ to Israel for pesach (I know a few) won't be able to take a laptop or iPad on the flight? That's crazy

So I would imagine this is a way for American intelligence to access any information they want from people of interest.

You guys really think that they are doing it just to make you uncomfortable? It's not like they can profile.

Is this only from these countries to the USA, or from the USA as well?

If this is his 'ban', it's a pretty pathetic attempt.

The electronic ban is only to the USA not X USA and only applies to the countries on the list below:Royal Jordanian, EgyptAir, Turkish Airlines, Saudi Arabian Airlines, Kuwait Airways, Royal Air Moroc, Qatar Airways, Emirates and Etihad Airways. So if you have friends providing back on turkish for pesach they will not be able to bring Electronics on the plane on the way back.
