Just looking for a little advice/re-assurance.

I know the laptop ban officially only applies to certain airlines flying into the US etc from certain locations.


I need this time to take my laptop on a trip from LHR to JFK.

Aside from official rules, am I likely to experience any issues or extra hassle at either airport in either direction?

Thanks for any thoughts.

Don't worry Concorde, the laptop ban is all but over now and never directly affected this route.

Thanks joeyc, I was particularly concerned by the potential for "over enthusiastic" Home Land security!

As always, great and knowledgeable advice - my laptop can rest assured that my stress levels will not be adversely affected!
