Hey Airlines, You Can Stop Warning People About Exploding Galaxy Note 7s

...

Yesterday, the FAA announced that airlines no longer have to start their pre-boarding notifications by telling the world that the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 is a ticking time bomb and is banned from planes. That doesn’t mean the phone isn’t still banned from planes, but airlines no longer have to tell you every time you step foot on one of their planes. 

In the statement, the FAA also noted that Samsung has successfully recalled “more than 96%” of Galaxy Note 7 devices in the wild, plus they issued the battery-bricking software update in recent weeks to finish off the rest. Those happenings are apparently enough for the FAA to lift the need for pre-boarding notifications.

Again, the Note 7 is still banned from airlines, including in passenger cargo and air cargo. So yeah, don’t try to ship or pack your Note 7, 4% folks.
