News of a potential Trump administration ban on taking laptops and certain other electronic devices on board flights between Europe and the United States does not seem to have had an impact on consumers yet, according to a Skift survey of over 1,500 UK travellers.

Over 80% of respondents who were already considering flights to the US said they would not change their plans as a result. The earlier ban has already had an impact on demand from some middle-eastern countries, affecting airlines such as Emirates who have reduced capacity as a result.

Although airlines have been briefed about possible changes, no formal decision has yet been made.
