    Everyone knows "You can't say bomb on an airplane", and if the underwear bomber is any indication of how airlines feel about explosive devices you can't carry a bomb on a plane either. That being said for now you can carry your potentially explosive Galaxy Note 7 onto a plane. The Federal Aviation Administration had considered an all out ban on the Note 7, but after a week of consideration they have decided instead to allow the phone on flights as long as you turn them off during the flight.

    The European Air Safety Agency also suggested that users inform cabin crew when a device is damaged, hot, produces smoke, is lost, or falls into the seat structure. Airlines are following suit releasing their own official statements.

    Virgin Atlantic had this to say:

    Similar statements have been released from the following airlines American, Delta, United, Southwest, Air France, Virgin America, Virgin Atlantic, and Emirates. None have actually banned the device yet.
