Airlines Start Bans on Lithium-Ion Batteries

Airlines Start Bans on Lithium-Ion Batteries

Delta Air Lines and Alaska Airlines are both reported to have begun taking similar steps in order to maintain security aboard flights.

American Airlines passengers using smart luggage will be asked to remove all batteries from their luggage and place it in carry-on bags.
