There was even a recent report that passengers with the Galaxy Note7 were not allowed to go on board airplanes with the phones. It was in view of this that Sam Adurogboye, NCAA’s general manager, public relations on September 20 gave a directive that passengers not to turn on or charge the device while aboard any plane.
