    My guess is that airlines may still buy the bags.

    Reason: starting to get reports, though proprionately far fewer, regarding smoldering or burning from other smartphones, too. including iPhone 7 plus, 7, and 6 plus.

    In fact, I had been a tad fearful that some zealous regulator would want to ban ALL phones, which of course would be a bummer. If tge carriers have the bags, maybe the feds would be less likely to go THAT far.

      Not too surprising. Most countries will honor US safety rules/decisions like this one.
