Laptops could be banned from checked luggage because of fire risk

FAA filed its findings with the United Nations, and is pushing global airlines to respond.

According to a document that was recently filed with the U.N.by the Federal Aviation Industry (FAA) there is a recommendation that is urging airlines world over to ban large, personal laptops from checked bags.

The UN will discuss the policy during a meeting in Montreal next week.

The FAA conducted a series of 10 tests simulating the thermal runaway of a battery next to aerosol containers that are permitted in checked baggage.

Speaking to ManUtd.com, Cole said, "December or January time, of course, it is not bad!" "Like he keeps saying, he is not human". "I didn't think he could be stronger, but it made him even stronger". "I won't let him stop, he needs to work now for me".

The FAA is anxious that if a laptop were to come near an aerosol can, it could create an explosion. In one scenario, dry shampoo packed next to the overheated laptop "yielded the most troubling results", the FAA paper says.

The Associated Press reports the FAA as saying that experiments showed a faulty laptop battery exploding in close proximity to an aerosol can, such as a bottle of hairspray, could cause a fire that overwhelms aircraft fire-suppression systems.

In tests, the fire spread so quickly that the Halon gas fire suppressant systems used in airline cargo compartments were unable to put out the fire before the explosion.

"The threat is still severe", Duke said October 19.
