The Electronics Ban

This first appeared on SimpliFlying  as a comment on the article #ELECTRONICSBAN

I traveled from DXB to DTW via AMS with KL and DL. At DXB security was the normal x-ray and walk through metal detectors. However, at the gate in AMS boarding DL all the names of the DXB connecting passengers were on the monitor requesting them to check with the counter. Simply all were required to undergo extra security measures, nothing unusual just a swab of laptops, iPads and tablets for explosive traces and the usual start it for me. This was done in AMM every time I boarded to DTW. So, if it is good enough for DL why is it not good enough for ME carriers. Why go for such an unsafe procedure of putting hundreds of lithium battery powered devices in the aircraft hold? A procedure EASA, the FAA, FSF, IATA and every safety organization has warned against?!!

Just saying
