Possible chaos if US extends airline laptop ban

(Bloomberg). The airlines that carry out flights ocean liners could soon find themselves in a device-free zone if US charges move forward with a security ban on

laptops and other large electronic devices on airline flights from Europe.

Airline companies brace for operational chaos at European airports after the Department of Homeland Security (DHS, by its acronym in English) said last week that it could extend to Europe the ban imposed in March on flights to the United States from 10 Middle Eastern airports. The new security protocol could mean longer lines at security checkpoints, more delays, confusion at the gate and even more inconvenience for travelers.

“I think it’s going to be extremely chaotic,” said Rich Roth, CEO of CTI Consulting, a security firm that specializes in aviation. The official predicts that European airlines, airports and officials will press DHS to revise its analysis of the transatlantic threat, in the hope that a more lenient strategy will be applied than currently envisioned. “I think they overstated their risk assessment a little bit,” Roth said.

Companies and their travel managers have been up in arms over the proposed electronics ban, said Greg Raiff, CEO of New Hampshire charter operator Private Jet Services.

“Imagine a technology company that relocates employees from Europe to the United States and tells developers at those companies that they can’t use laptops on planes,” Raiff said. “I think we’re in for a major uproar from the business community over this.”

Why are airlines allowed to oversell flights?

While airlines will not abandon transatlantic travel, a ban on the Electronics could discourage business travel when combined with other recent regulations that have made travel more expensive, said Michael McCormick, executive director of the Global Business Travel Association. When faced with being separated from their computers – possibly putting sensitive business information at risk – some companies might tell employees to leave their computers at home.

“Business travelers would be much more willing to accept much more rigorous screening at the airport, rather than having to part with their tools when they travel,” McCormick said.

The threat of loss of laptops -whether due to theft, damage or loss as checked luggage- probably leads some companies to evaluate whether some meetings can be carried out by Skype or other virtual methods, said Andrew Coggins, a management professor at Pace University’s Lubin School of Business Administration. “People don’t want to part with their laptops,” he said.

That may be bad news for airlines that rely heavily on travel from business for profitability.
