Vietnam and Thailand bans Macbook on aircraft

As of August 2019, Vietnam has banned on all flights Apple’s 15-inch MacBook Pro laptops produced between September 2015 and February 2017. Meanwhile, Thai Airways International has also warned passengers to leave their old generation Macbook Pro laptops at home.

The decision follows a product recall order by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, which said the batteries in these batches pose a fire hazard. 

The ban applies to both carry-on and checked baggage.
