USA trip. Face additional delays

The TSA released a statement this weekend detailing their plans to screen US-bound passengers carrying electronics on direct flights.
Amid increased concerns amongst US officials surrounding possible terror threats, passengers travelling from the EU, UK, Middle Eastern and African airports could be requested to power up their mobile devices and laptops at checkpoints as part of new measures to help strengthen airline security.
Owners of devices that are not charged or cannot turn on will not be allowed to bring them onto the plane, owners may also face additional screening and further security checks.
US Security officials singled out smartphones and tablets for extra security checks on US-bound direct flights from Europe, the Middle East and Africa. The TSA does not control security at overseas airports, however airports operating direct flights to the US are obliged to meet their requests and security standards in order to continue operating those flights.

The UK, Germany and France have already confirmed their compliance with American demands, however no information has yet been released regarding which airports will be affected or if there will be passenger delays.
If you or any of your friends or family are planning a US trip, ensure all devices are fully charged before you head to the airport and leave yourself plenty of time to get through any extra security checkpoints you may face.

Did France declare their 'compliance' with their hands in the air?

It would greatly surprise me. They didn't even do that during the security hysterics after 9/11 - I can't see them banning electricals full-stop until there is some sort of electronics-based bomb plot on board a plane.

I don't believe archer was being serious when he said that. I think he may have been exaggerating to make a point.

I could be overestimating him though...

I couldn't tell if he was or not! It's not outside the realms of possibility and is a view many people seem to have, so who knows...

There was just a report on the 1 o'clock new on Radio 4 that if you can switch your device on and prove it's not a bomb! Then you can take on board with you. If not, they're going allow you to post it home!!!
