Several airlines have placed restrictions on passengers carrying or checking-in the 15-inch MacBook Pro laptops that were sold between September 2015 and February 2017.

It comes after Apple announced a recall because of defective batteries that could overheat and pose a fire safety risk.

The UAE's two major airlines, Emirates Airline and Etihad Airways, have both told travellers to double check their carrier's policy about the effected models before setting out.
