FAA's advice to Galaxy Note7 users: Don't turn on or charge the device on board plane



The US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has finally come up a formal statement on Samsung Galaxy Note7's in-flight use, and no they haven't banned the phone from flights. The agency, instead, is "strongly" advising users against turning on or charging the device on board a plane.



Here's the complete statement:

“In light of recent incidents and concerns raised by Samsung about its Galaxy Note 7 devices, the Federal Aviation Administration strongly advises passengers not to turn on or charge these devices on board aircraft and not to stow them in any checked baggage”.

Meanwhile, a couple of Australian airlines - Qantas and Virgin Australia - have also asked Galaxy Note7 users to not switch on or charge the phone inside the flight.
