The agency told Bloomberg in a statement that it is "aware of the recalled batteries used in some Apple MacBook Pro laptops." It has already notified the major airlines about it and told them to follow the agency's 2016 safety instructions for devices with recalled batteries. As such, you cannot take an affected laptop in the feed, nor can you check it in as a load. However, you can take it on the airplane when the battery is replaced.
Bloomberg states that four airlines based in the United Kingdom, Italy and Canada, managed by Total Cargo Expertise, recently implemented the same ban. The company already announced that the MacBook Pro model is no longer allowed in any of the airlines, and said staff will remind passengers at the gate and before takeoff.
