Though it is a usual protocol upon boarding for a flight that the use of mobile phones is prohibited, four airlines really put emphasis on a certain phone model.

A recent technology report in The Sydney Morning Herald stated that four airlines have banned the use of Samsung Galaxy Note 7 while on board. The said airlines were Qantas, Jetstar, Virgin Australia, and Tiger Airways.

According to the report, the airlines have prohibited its use while on board due to battery concerns. Recently, there were lots of issues claiming that the battery of the said mobile phone is not in good condition.

The report also stated that there were 51, 060 Samsung Galaxy Note 7 mobile phones that were recalled by the company for battery issues.

The move of the four airlines can possibly be considered as for safety purposes while on board as they are liable for the passengers while they are in the flight and it could possibly affect plane operations as well.
