I am sure everyone at this point is aware that tomorrow a full laptop ban from Europe to the USA will be announced (update: or not). I am clearly not happy about this as Delta has all their international birds equipped with FAST Gogo service and I get it free thanks to holding my non-Delta AMEX Business Platinum card that includes 10 free passes each year. So is there any kind of workaround?
It sounds like everything but items the size of a cell phone will be banned. However, what should work (since it just takes two AA batteries) is my Motorola Bluetooth Keyboard that is almost a full sized keyboard and very comfortable to type on. If they take it from me my next try would be a much smaller one that is about the same size as my cell phone.
Pair my Motorola keyboard with my Microsoft Bluetooth mouse and I can use the kick stand built into my phone case for my LG V20 phone that has a rather large screen and I can at least get some work done on the flight.
Now I know none of these are an ideal solution as nothing is quite as good as my full laptop but when your back is up against the wall you have to resort to desperate measures and for only a few bucks (and Amazon Prime shipping) you can buy a quick fix for yourself too! – René
