Delta sign error hints that the coming tech ban on planes will cover nearly everything
Abandon all devices bigger than a smartphone, ye who board here.
We just got our first look at an airline warning passengers that they cannot bring laptops, tablets, or e-readers in their carry-on bags.
The picture quickly caught the attention of the media. Delta reportedly told ABC the sign was put up in error.
Reports of a broader ban on electronics aboard international flights emerged earlier this week.
We’re still not positive how far the ban extends, but initial stories said the rules – originally put in place for eight Middle Eastern and African countries — would be extended to parts of Europe.
The initial ban also saw a company post the ban too early, with Jordanian Airlines tweeting out a statement before the ban went into effect.
The sign above mirrors what many media outlets had previously reported — that the new ban will go beyond laptops to include tablets and any other electronics of a similar size.
This story is developing.
