Airline Security

Anyone know if Cuba is planning on introducing the latest security measures requested by the good ol' USA?? i.e. all electrical items need to be charged and be able to be switched on....

I can see a good scam at customs coming here :)

I honestly thought this was always the rule and have always ensured that electronic devices were charged so they could be checked.

They say stricter security for all passengers travelling to the US, when going through security how do they know what your destination is. They don't. For many years I've taken belts, shoes off and all electronic devices are subject to scanning.

I agree with #1. Its been like that in Canada since at least 2010. I had to power my laptop for them at YVR on my way home from the Vancouver Games.

I got asked to power a laptop up *years* ago at YFC and it's never happened since. However, I'm going to assume everyone is going to go knee-jerk over this as usual and assume all my devices need to be powered up when flying anywhere to anywhere. Just in case. (PS another reason why AC rouge flights with no power outlets seatback are a pain to be avoided.)

Flavour of the week. This too shall pass.

I've also seen this at Canadian airports on occasion for years.
