The Middle East's top 3 airlines are cleverly defying the US government's laptop ban

The Department of Homeland Security's ban on large electronics has been in effect for a week. The ban, which covers nine airlines, forbids passengers from bringing any electronic devices larger than a cell phone into the cabin of non-stop flights to the US from 10 airports in the Middle East and North Africa. The ban has been an unmitigated headache for the airlines and their customers.  Business travelers and their laptops are generally inseparable. Many passengers use time in transit to work. ...

Karim Rashid Detained at JFK

This boils my blood to read, probably because I am biased. I'll explain my bias first. Before he was famous, Karim Rashid was my professor at Pratt Institute. He had a slight foreign accent—a Canadian one, as that's where he was raised. When I first saw his name printed on my schedule I assumed it was pronounced "Ka-REEM," but then learned it was pronounced like "Karen" with an "m" on the end instead of an "n." That was the extent of what was "foreign" about Karim, and then he simply became the ...

(At Least) Three Things You Need Due to the New Electronics Ban

New restrictions on electronic carry-ons threaten chaos at security points. At first, the new and utterly nonsensical ban on any electronics bigger than a phone on some flights seemed like it was something most of us would happily avoid. But by essentially including all flights from Dubai to the US (ie Emirates), from Abu Dhabi (ie Etihad flights) and Istanbul (ie Turkish Airlines) it has shifted from something that might only inconvenience ‘other people’ and now threatens all of us who might b...
