U.S., European Union to Discuss Airline Safety in Washington Next Week

On May 10, a day after terminating Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey, Trump met with the Russian foreign minister, Sergei Lavrov, and ambassador Sergey Kislyak. The pilot of the aircraft said that a similar incident at a higher altitude would have had fatal consequences due to the differences in pressure, according to the BBC.

The Trump administration's measure barring airline passengers from bringing larger electronic devices into flight cabins could cost passengers an extra $1.1 billion or more if applied to flights coming to the us from Europe, the head of the International Air Transport Association said.

The ban, according to some reports triggered by intelligence collected in a us commando raid on an al Qaeda compound in Yemen in January, could indicate bombmakers have found a new explosive material that contains difficult-to-detect chemical compounds.

As U.S. and European officials discuss aviation security in Brussels Wednesday, the airline industry is voicing major concerns. These include American Airlines Group, Delta Air Lines and United Airlines.

Teen Vogue spoke to Phyllis Bennis, a Middle East foreign policy expert and the director of the New Internationalism Project at the Institute for Policy Studies. A congressional official said Homeland Security was likely to expand the ban soon but did not say when or to what airports.

What does the US device ban now cover? "And it may well be 'security theater'".

Details of a specific threat have not been made public.

"The lithium ion batteries continue to be a challenge because if they're poorly manufactured or there's a manufacturing flaw they can cook off", said Goelz, now a senior vice president at the lobbying firm O'Neill and Associates.

"On this we need a bit more time", Ky said.

There is a booked meeting between the DHS and the authorities from the carrier companies to examine the insights about the proposed US ban on laptops, as per Reuters.

The UK followed up with a similar ban, and now there is a good chance it will affect flights from the UK to the USA soon.

Does the US ban single out specific airlines?

As many as 65 million people a year travel between Europe and North America on over 400 daily flights. This follows a ban on laptops in carry-on bags that has been in place on flights to the USA originating in 10 Middle Eastern cities since March.

A ban on tablets and laptops on flights from 10 cities, mostly in the Middle East, has been in place since March. Business travel, a lucrative segment for carriers, may fall if the electronics ban is expanded. "There are many variations of travel insurance product, and there's confusion as to what's covered and not covered".

The agency has not said when it will implement the expanded ban, or released an outline of what the actual restrictions would be.

There is still no decision on whether to include European airports in the ban, the U.S official said, adding that it is "under consideration" and that the USA reserves the right to unilaterally implement the measure whenever it decides there is an imminent threat.

The ban will require you to check your computer in baggage, along will your iPads, eReaders, cameras, DVD players, and game devices.

Here's why they're anxious: The route between Europe and the U.S.is the busiest worldwide corridor in the world. Business travelers may also be required to keep the laptops with them in the cabin.
