Welcome onboard – just don’t bring a Samsung Galaxy Note 7
Thai Airways have announced a total ban on the controversial Samsung Galaxy Note 7 smartphone.
Following the worldwide total recall of the device they have banned it both on passengers’ persons on the plane as well as in the hold.
Senior safety manager Praratana Patanasiri confirmed the ban yesterday after many incidents of the phone bursting into flames both before and after a battery upgrade was announced.
