They only flew the A380 to BOM and not to Istanbul. Another airline pulls out of the Istanbul market.

U.S. imposes electronics ban on flights from major Middle Eastern and African airports

The 10 international airports covered by the ban are in Cairo, Egypt; Dubai and Abu Dhabi, U.A.E.; Istanbul, Turkey; Doha, Qatar; Amman, Jordan; Kuwait City; Casablanca, Morocco; and Jeddah and Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

The nine airlines are Egyptair, Emirates Airline, Etihad Airways, Kuwait Airways, Qatar Airways, Royal Air Maroc, Royal Jordanian Airlines, Saudi Arabian Airlines and Turkish Airlines.

The officials said U.S. carriers are not affected because none of them fly from the airports in question to the U.S.

This will just give added pressure to EK, and EY regarding market competitiveness because the US just basically said we don't trust your local airports security screening.

Not good but at least the UAE is not the only country with this problem, so it's not like EK is going to be hurt from this.

Now that I think about this, many J travellers need their laptops to work on flights. Might hurt premium loads for all those airlines

Lol, but then again, Air Arabia doesn't fly to the US.

...but what if the US actually did catch on to chatter regarding new methods of potential terror, and this is a protective preventative measure. As bad as the new electronic ban might sound, it definitely beats a tragedy which would really have folk scratching their heads.

Seems strange that this only applies to Middle Eastern carriers. Would make more sense if it was a rule for all airlines.

The UK has also banned electronic devises from certain flights in the Middle East, and Africa. The UK ban doesn't seem to include Qatar, and the UAE like the US ban.

The six affected UK carriers are:

British Airways
EasyJet
Jet2.com
Monarch
Thomas Cook
Thomson

The eight overseas airlines subject to the ban are:

Turkish Airlines
Pegasus Airways
Atlas-Global Airlines
Middle East Airlines
Egyptair
Royal Jordanian,
Tunis Air
Saudia

I would say they are. Almost every single business traveller from the Middle East (and Indian sub-continent) to the USA will choose to go with a European airline as I would suspect no-one wants to check-in their laptop for fear of damage, or be stuck without it for such a long flight. Some passengers originating from Dubai may still prefer the direct flight, but for everyone else who would otherwise be connecting in Dubai, there's no reason to use Emirates.

Business travelers to India from North America already use European Airlines....they think traveling in an Arab airline is not classy enough....

The ME3s huge patronage to the Indian subcontinent arises from the fact that they fly to almost all the cities there with a decent sized international airport and hence you have a 1 stop connection unlike the Euro ones that fly only to 3-4 cities in the whole of south Asia....

Absolutely. But EK competes on price as well, and the only other carriers that usually undercut EK are QR and TK, and both are affected by the ban too. So I don't think EK has too much to worry about, but yes this is a setback.

If the airports are unsafe why are foreign airlines exempted from this security measure, they have a greater chance of being tragetted then a Muslim airline, whats to say a terrorist will spare a western carrier heading to its home base allowing PEDs in the cabin.

Is the ban proposer hoping western carriers will temporarily suspend operations to the region? the whole thing is not making any sense.

Canada is mulling the ban as well now.

True, it really doesn't make sense but oh well, it is what it is.

Canada just does whatever the US does/orders them to do, so its expected that they, along with the EU, are next to implement the ban.
