This is big news for anyone going back from Israel on Turkish or Royal Jordanian
yes, and for those that were still deciding this is a major issue to consider, especially with kids. How do you entertain them for a 15 hour trip without any of these devices. Sad, because 20 years ago this question would have been silly but today is a legitimate question.

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.
I heard at first that it was in either direction. Any confirmation that it is only entering the US?

Meh. I have a flight in August on RJ, I'm not particularly worried. Worst case I scrounge around for some extra cellphones for them to use.

You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used to start a religious discussion.

@Fakeunitedjeff: One way you know the Electronics Ban is BS is that Delta's flight to risky Lagos is getting totally ignored. Dick laughs from retirement.

There must be some real intelligence, even if they don't say so.

Who cares what the reason and how many countries impose this, Donald Trump will always be at fault
