Samsung’s Galaxy Note 7, which was supposed to be their best phone in years, has been taking a steady beating in the news lately. Because of the massive global recall because of battery issues, the newest and greatest from the Korean giant has been the butt of jokes and controversy lately.
Because of fears that the phone may catch fire while in flight, several international carriers – which include Etihad Airways, Singapore Airlines, Qantas and Virgin Australia – have already issued advisories in the use of the phablet, essentially banning anybody from using it during their flight.
While you can have the phone in your person while on the flight, it must be turn off during the duration. They also ask that customers not put the phone in their check-in baggage.
