Flights to ban Apple MacBook Pro laptops

U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has banned certain models of Apple MacBook Pro laptops on flights, after the company recalled select units which had batteries posing fire risks.

The FAA, which is aware of the recalled batteries that are used in some Apple MacBook Pro laptops, has alerted airlines about the recall, Reuters reported.

Apple said in June it would recall a limited number of 15-inch MacBook Pro units as their batteries were susceptible to overheating. The units were sold between September 2015 and February 2017.
