Etihad Airways had their bad lifted on 2nd (read more here) and Emirates and Qatar Airways yesterday (read more here).

You can access Qatar’s page for this announcement here that you can find below:

Qatar Airways is pleased to confirm that with immediate effect, all personal electronic devices can be carried on board all departures from Hamad International Airport, Doha, to destinations in the United States.

Qatar Airways and Hamad International Airport have met with all requirements of the US Department of Homeland Security’s new security guidelines and we would like to express our thanks to the US and local authorities for their support during this process.

We would also like to thank our loyal passengers for their understanding and patience while the ban has been in place.


Seems that we are pretty much back at where we started in March. UK still has their version of these bans in place as far as I can tell.

Not sure exactly what these enhanced screening methods are that are supposedly in place now for US bound flights.
