News: Ban lifted on electronic devices on (some) flights from Middle east to the States

A few Airlines that have had electronic devices banned from the cabin for flights bound to the USA have had their bans lifted. The list includes Qatar, Turkish, Emirates and Etihad.

Apparently what was done is the home airports of those airlines have had their security measures inspected and ones that were found to be satisfactory have had the ban lifted.

It was interesting to see how the airlines responded to this ban initially especially because they the heavy hitters Qatar and Emirates both were competing for the Skytrax top airline award, that as you most likely know Qatar took.
