Illustrative image (Source: Vietnam Air Traffic Management) Hanoi (VNA) – The Civil Aviation Authority of Vietnam has decided to ban passengers and crew members from bringing to planes 15-inch MacBook Pro laptops produced and sold between September 2015 and February 2017. Under the authority’s instruction, no 15-inch MacBook Pro laptops in this group are allowed to be present on planes as their batteries are announced to be defective. Those violating the instruction can be denied of flights and fined. The instruction was issued after the US Federal Aviation Administration banned certain 15-inch MacBook Pro laptops with potentially defective batteries from US flights. Apple issued the recall in June, saying it had determined that, in a limited number of older generation 15-inch MacBook Pro units, the battery may overheat and pose a fire safety risk. Flight crews must be trained to quickly respond to the discovery of such laptops while the plane is already airborne, the aviation authority said.-VNA

It has said that the 15-inch laptops produced between September 2015 and February 2017 that are either turned off or have their batteries replaced would no longer be banned on flights.
The new directive follows another one that had been issued by the Civil Aviation Authority of Vietnam (CAAV) in August, saying lithium batteries that are either damaged or included in the recall list of their manufacturers for safety reasons would be banned from all Vietnamese airlines and all foreign airlines going in and out of Vietnam. The ban would apply to all devices containing these batteries as well.
The ban had followed a product recall order by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission for possible fire hazards due to overheating batteries.
Testing conducted by Apple in October 2020 using preproduction 13-inch MacBook Pro systems with Apple M1 chip, 8GB of RAM, and 512GB SSD. The Apple TV app movie playback test measures battery life by playing back 1080p HD content with display brightness set to eight clicks from bottom. Battery life varies by use and configuration.
