Recently, the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration banned select 15-inch MacBook Pros on flights due to the risk of a fire being caused by their defective battery. Laptops that have replaced batteries are not affected.

Unfortunately for travellers, Virgin takes this a step further with a blanket ban on all MacBook models.
