Following Apple’s worldwide recall of the 15-inch MacBook Pro laptop batteries sold between September 2015 and February 2017, Malaysia Airlines passengers are not permitted to carry the affected model as checked baggage until further notice. The laptops must be placed in the cabin baggage and subject to specific conditions:
- The device must not be used and must be switched off at all times throughout the flight.
