Major airlines ban use of Galaxy Note 7 inside aircraft


Major airlines are banning passengers from using the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 following reports of the device’s battery exploding or catching fire. The U.S. Federal Aviation Administration has warned travelers against turning on, charging, or stowing the Note 7, the first time the agency has singled out a specific brand and product. Numerous airline companies have also urged their passengers to turn off their phablets and refrain from plugging them in in the cabin. Cathay Pacific, based in Hong Kong, is the latest to enforce a ban, prohibiting travelers from storing the smartphone even in their checked baggage.



주요 항공사들이 승객들의 갤럭시노트7 기내 사용을 금지 했습니다. 배터리가 폭발하거나 불이 붙는다는 보도가 나온 이후에 이뤄졌습니다. 미국 연방항공청(FAA)은 여행객들이 갤럭시노트7의 전원을 키거나, 충전하거나, 보관하는 등의 행동에 대해 경고했으며 특정 브랜드와 제품을 지목하는 경우는 이번이 처음입니다. 다수의 항공사들도 승객들이 갤럭시노트7의 전원을 끄고 기내에서의 충전을 하지 말 것을 권고했습니다. 가장 최근 갤럭시노트7의 사용을 금지한 홍콩 항공사인 케세이퍼시픽은 여행객들이 심지어 위탁 수화물에도 갤럭시노트7을 넣는 것을 금지하고 있습니다.
