Qantas Bans Passengers from Charging Galaxy Note 7 on its Flights

Meanwhile, Qantas was quick to address a potentially dangerous situation with the new and faulty Galaxy Note 7 by prohibiting its passengers to charge the phone while flying.

Following numerous reports of fire and exploding batteries, Samsung has decided to recall all Galaxy Note 7 devices last week.

A spokesperson for the Australian flag carrier said that the carrier has directed passengers to "not switch on or charge them (Galaxy Note 7 phones) inflight" following the South Korean company's decision to recall the device.

Qantas passenger Dean Cabena confirmed that Qantas has banned charging Samsung Note 7s inflight on Twitter, saying:

"Qantas made announcement on flight today? no charging Samsung Note 7 on plane."

A Note 7 phone recently exploded in a hotel room in Perth, causing $1,800 of damage.
