Passengers flying to the United Kingdom and U.S. from a number of Muslim-majority countries have been banned from bringing laptops, tablet computers and larger electronic devices in their carry-on luggage from today.
This was not the first time that Arab airlines have launched unconventional marketing campaigns off the back of Trump's statements or agenda. Turkish Airlines, Pegasus Airways, Atlas-Global Airlines, Middle East Airlines, EgyptAir, Royal Jordanian, Tunis Air and Saudia will also be affected.
Its list of "12 things to do on a 12-hour flight with no laptop or tablet" has been shared by more than 10,000 users on social media.
But Emirates Airline took another approach and updated a commercial starring Jennifer Aniston.
The company has rolled up its sleeves to bring in the "passenger tablet" application, which was previously tried on some airplanes, once again. Britain announced similar restrictions.
While Middle Eastern airlines grapple with carry-on bans for laptops on flights to the United States and Britain, one carrier is encouraging passengers to do the unthinkable: actually talk to each other.
More than half of worldwide passengers at Turkish Airlines, which is 49 percent state-owned and serves 247 destinations outside Turkey, are transit customers who could instead travel through Europe or other hubs.
However, the airline also invites passengers to "appreciate the miracle of flight", or "meditate" as they while away the time.
Emirates said on Thursday it was introducing a "laptop and tablet handling service" for US-bound flights which would allow passengers to use their devices until just before they board.
But this may not keep everyone happy. "We have reason to be concerned", the agency said - but did not address any specific threat", said the US Department of Homeland Security.
Individuals traveling in long transatlantic routes will lose a way of work, while others will not be able to use devices offered by Airline carriers due to the requirement to handle sensitive client data with caution.
