Shame... They didn't even get their in-flight peanuts.

By that article it states its likely that the phone was replaced.

So they don't know...?

a few things about that..... sure battery might be defective but having a hard plastic shell around it does protect the battery and at least help contain it.

overheating is another concern as to the thinness of the phones, making them thinner is just compromising heat dissipation.

furthermore what i hope would happen is to bring back removable batteries. removable batteries will have a hardshell protecting the battery and it would also solve the air transport issue of being able to pull the battery out and isolate it in a secure environment.

perhaps preflight surrender all lithium battery to be stored in a fireproof container would resolve phones exploding in planes

Thats probably not going to happen, or even if it did, would take a lot longer than this incident to implement to be effective.

The issue would be liability to replace destroyed/damaged phones in the event that one phone goes kaput. I realize that safety is first but in reality fear of danger is not as long lasting in society as fighting for who's liable for financial compensation.

I've been on three separate airlines since the note was released any only one of them mentioned before take off to switch off a note 7 device. Forgetting about liabilities, all airlines should make this announcement for our own safety...

After reading various articles about it the gentleman said he bought the phone on the 21st september however didnt samsung stop sales until earlier this week? So yes it could be a replacement (as they started issuing them on the 19th sept) but he couldnt of bought it so i dont think its a new one. Just someone looking to pile more pressure on samsung.

I could however be wrong so someone please correct me if i am.

The quote below says they specifically checked that phone with Samsung's own recall tool to see if it was one that needed recalled:
Quote:
Running the phone's IMEI (blurred for privacy reasons) through Samsung's recall eligibility checker returns a "Great News!" message saying that Green's Galaxy Note 7 is not affected by the recall.

Edit: Also AT&T has the Note 7 available for in store exchange.
Quote:
Currently, the Samsung Galaxy Note7 is only available for in-store exchanges. To exchange your Galaxy Note7 at a store near you, please select Continue.

The article says he picked it up on the 21st. It doesn't say he bought a new one.
