Apple 15-inch MacBook Pro Guidelines for Use on Royal Brunei Airlines

20 September 2019, 3:26 PM

Apple has recently announced that the battery for some older generation 15-inch MacBook Pro units may overheat and pose a fire safety risk.

Royal Brunei Airlines restricts the use of 15-inch MacBook Pro units sold between September 2015 and February 2017 on board unless information is provided to verify the laptop is not affected by the MacBook Pro Battery Recall Program. These devices may be permitted for use in-flight if guests provide verification that their unit is not affected or that the batteries have been replaced. To verify if a device is affected by this recall, please visit: https://support.apple.com/en-gb/15-inch-macbook-pro-battery-recall 

Guests that do not have proof of verification will be required to keep the device turned off, protect it from accidental activations and not charge it at any time during in-flight.
