The drama about Apple AirTags at Lufthansa

Lufthansa wrote on Twitter last Friday that location trackers must be disabled on all flights if they are in the baggage. Now Lufthansa has reversed this regulation.

When Lufthansa made the tweet on Friday, the reason was that trackers are considered dangerous goods. Therefore, they must be deactivated and thus cannot be used.

Now, however, Lufthansa has done a turnaround. According to the various aviation authorities in the U.S., Europe and Germany, devices that use little power are not classified as dangerous goods.

Apple has also had the batteries of the AirTags certified for all flights by the FAA and should thus also not pose a danger to air traffic. Lufthansa's concern was justified, however, as lithium ion batteries can catch fire relatively easily.
