Emirates Reacts to Electronic Devices Ban with “who needs laptops anyway?” Video

Emirates has just released “who needs tablets and laptops anyway?” video on Emirates Youtube channel as a response to the imposed aviation security measures.

Emirates has just responded with a 30-second Youtube video called “Let us entertain you”, inspired  from the recent Jennifer Aniston advert.

The advertisement highlights that Emirates offers more than 2,500 channels of the latest movies, live sport and kids TV among other choices.

Earlier, the United States (U.S) has announced a ban on large electronic devices on flights from nine airlines of eight Muslim majority countries, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has announced on Tuesday.

Emirates is included in the US decision, along with Royal Jordanian, Turkish airlines, Saudi Arabian Airlines, EgyptAir, Etihad Airways (Emirati airline), Royal Air Maroc, Kuwait Airways and Qatar Airways.

The ban is reportedly set to continue for seven months. Electronic devices larger than a cell phone will have to be checked in with the baggage and none will be allowed in cabins.
