In the thread about is it alright to have laptops onboard the aircraft someone mentioned that Aer Lingus and Air India ban CD players and DVD players. Does anyone know why this is?

I can't say for Aer Lingus, but in the case of India, you can be pretty sure that any regulation is formed by idiotic beauracracy based on research performed in the 1960's.

Banning CD players is probably up there is not being allowed to take photographs from the plane or of Indian airports or aircraft. One could suppose that it derives from not allowed recording devices to operate

How about a recent AeroMexico flight where the capt made numerous announcements about not switching on ANY electronic device, including gameboys, because..... he "got a failure on the flightdeck" and suspected gameboys!!!!

Sometimes individual crew can be far worse than many airlines...

Get with the times. Its coming up to almost a year since the photography prohibition was lifted. I've got literally dozens of shots on AI aircraft and at Indian airports uploaded to myaviation.net since then.

Air India does NOT have standing prohibitions against either CD players or DVD players, but will occasionally restrict the use of ANY battery operated devices aboard the aircraft based on specific intelligence reccomendations of the Bureau of Civil Aviation Security.
