FRANKFURT (Reuters) - German flagship carrier Lufthansa said on Tuesday it had banned Samsung's Galaxy Note 7 mobile phones from all of its flights with immediate effect.
"Transport of the devices is forbidden on all flights, both in checked bags and in hand luggage," a spokeswoman for Lufthansa said, confirming a report by German radio station MDR Aktuell.
Lufthansa had previously only banned the smartphones from flights to and from the United States.
Samsung scrapped the Galaxy Note 7 last week because of incidents where the phones began smoking or caught fire, dealing a huge blow to its reputation.
