Electronics Not Allowed On Air Travel

By: Andrew Webster

      As of March 22, 2017, ten airlines are actively participating in an electronics ban. This will change what people bring aboard flights and rethink what passengers feel is essential to have. If people bring certain devices aboard, they will be forced to have them checked. According to www.cnbc.com, items that people are allowed include phones, gaming systems, and devices that can be worn, such as smartwatches. Items that you can’t bring are laptops and anything that measures larger than 6.9 inches by 3.66 inches. These restrictions apply in both the United States and the United Kingdom.
This ban was a result of President Trump’s plan to stop ISIS. I feel as a result it will have more of a negative affect than a positive one. On the positive side, airplanes will become safer and this definitely will reduce ISIS activity. On the negative side, it may result in less people wanting to travel to the United States, especially people from the Middle East. The ban will also result in longer searches and more time being searched, instead of actually flying. People have made their concerns clear about the ban. Anything bigger than a smartphone will now be searched and many feel that it is just a waste of time.
