The recent cases of exploding Samsung Galaxy Notes and sometimes iPhones has caused for U.S. Airlines to take measures such as adding fire-containment bags.
Seattle-based Alaska Airlines was the first to add fire-containment bags. All 219 of its planes were equipped with the bags in May. Virgin America also has fire-containment bags on its approximately 60 aircraft. Atlanta’s Delta Airlines is going to be adding the bags to all of its 900-plus planes. Delta will equip 166 planes that make transoceanic flights and its Boeing 757s used for domestic flights first. By the end of the year, those planes will have two bags each.
