    How many people will need get replacements in order for this to happen? Will it ever happen?!

    There's no actual ban, just advisement. Just flew Southwest and no mention of the Note 7 and no one said anything to me about my phone.

    The word ban has been wrongly used by most news outlets.

    The TSA even commented that they don't have the manpower to search people for a specific type of phone. Just show them your green battery. :-)

    "Repaired and Replaced Devices. Recalled lithium battery powered devices that have been
    repaired or have had battery components replaced as required by the recall notice are not
    subject to the restrictions on recalled lithium batteries. It should be noted that it is often
    difficult to distinguish products that are subject to a recall from those that are not. Many
    product recalls only affect certain batches of serial numbers of the same product model. Other
    recalled products carried by passengers or shipped as cargo may have already been repaired or
    had the defective lithium batteries replaced. Therefore, active screening methods at the point
    of acceptance or check-in may be difficult."

    Just flew United last Tuesday out of DC. TSA did not remark on locked pre-recall Note 7 in carry-on. Preflight, on-plane announcements both outbound and on the return mentioned that Note 7s must be powered off both on the ground and in the air. Have replaced with new Note 7 since but not flown yet.

    I really hate how the media drums up fear and over exaggerates. Now that all this is over, I dont see them covering the fact that Samsung has replacements out there like they covered the "so called" explosions.

    Samsung is actually the one doing a lousy job with this recall. Many airlines are actually banning any and all use of Note 7 devices on airplanes. Unfortunately, this means that even if you have a "good" device following a replacement, the ban is still in effect. Try proving to the flight attendant or another official that your device is a good device.

    "See the green icon - that means it is good" followed by "I'm sorry sir, the ban applies to all Note 7 devices".

    I spoke to Samsung's rep today that is dealing with the exchange, and even he admitted that getting airplane bans or advisories to go away will be a challenge.

    These bans are not going away but resale value is. I read in xda folks getting replacement by mail are not being told to send in old phone. Guess what happens to some of those?

    There are not "banning." There are advising, and the flight attendants do not even check. Used my old Note 7 as my boarding pass last week.

    There is just a advisory to not power up your note 7 . All sure once the FAA is satisfied with most n7 returned they'll lift the announcement

    Air France last week - "Please note that use of Samsung Note 7 is forbidden on this flight. The phone must be powered down, cannot be in airplane mode, and must be stored in checked luggage". That's not an advisory. That's a ban on use. Air Canada is the same way as are several other airlines that I know. By the time all of this is said and done, the Note 7 will be the biggest flagship failure that Samsung has ever released. It's really too bad though because this was the first time that they genuinely surpassed the iPhone in design, feature set, and everything else and then this. On the flip-side, Note 8 is going to be bulletproof.

    I just got off a Westjet flight here in Canada and was told to power it down and not use it. I told them it was a replacement but it didn't matter. They make a note 7 announcement before take off to power them off.

    Precisely the issue. This phone is going to remain perma-banned from flights for its lifecycle. Samsung either has to rebrand it, like Note 7s or something, or anybody who flies and uses this phone may as well look elsewhere.

    Cycle for smartphones is one year. Note 8 will be out before anyone forgets about this fiasco.

    Some of us actually want to follow the rules and not risk exorbitant fines. It would be much better for Samsung to work with the airlines in an intelligent way to remove the ban. Sadly, I don't see this happening.

    This is no doubt that that Samsung is working with the airlines to remove the ban. The hurdle they face is that a lot a people still haven't turned in their defective phones.

    Should have mentioned that I was referring specifically to the US. Your ROW mileage may vary.

    According to the Samsung representative in Canada, Samsung has no influence on the decisions made by airlines. It is up to them to decide when and if to remove the ban.
