Flight passengers have been warned by United States officials not to switch on or charge their latest Samsung Galaxy Note 7 smartphones on board the plane.
The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has also advised against packing the phones into any checked-in luggage. The Korean company recalled the latest model last week after reports that the device exploded during or after charging. So far Qantas and Virgin Australia have told their customers not to charge or use the phone during flights.
Meanwhile, Samsung said it would speed up shipments of replacement Galaxy Note 7 phones to ease safety concerns.
