On Sunday, Homeland Security Secretary John F. Kelly said he would consider expanding the existing ban on laptops in passenger cabins to all planes flying in and out of the United States.
Currently, the Department of Homeland Security does not allow passengers from 10 airports, primarily in the Middle East, to carry any electronic devices larger than a cell phone onto their flights. The ban was put in place out of concern of terrorist attacks.
How dangerous would it be to continue allowing laptops and tablets on international flights? As a passenger, how much are you willing to risk for access to your electronic devices? And how likely is it that a ban like this would actually be put in place?
