Turkish Airlines today started offering a laptop
to business class passengers on U.S.-bound flights.
The same service will be offered to U.K.-bound business class passengers from 12 May 2017.
Passengers who deliver their own laptop
to the authorized TK staff before their flight can request a
laptop from the cabin crew in order to continue their work or
personal processes on-board during the flight.
The airline says that a high security system has
been installed on the laptops which is designed to protect the personal
information/work of passengers by automatically and
permanently deleting it all from the system when the laptop is shut down.
However, if passengers wish
to make a copy of their work to an USB memory stick so that they
can easily transfer it to their own laptop once landed then they
can easily do that too.
The topic of the laptop ban came up during the WTTC Global Summit
2017 session with Tony Fernandes (AirAsia) and Gary Chapman
