The other day I was super excited to post that Etihad was no longer affected by the portable electronics ban and was the first airline to manage to get the restriction removed after the recent announcements from the Department of Homeland Security.
Well more airlines have been joining the party over the last few days and taking to Twitter to announce the good news, first was Turkish Airlines.
But Emirates weren't slow to respond either
And most surprisingly, considering the tension in the region and the recent allegations, the ban has also been lifted from Qatar Airways out of Doha

This still leaves Egypt Air, Saudia, Kuwait, Royal Air Maroc and Royal Jordanian Airlines left affected by the ban. I can only assume they won't be too far behind as it seems the changes aren't too hard or time-consuming to implement.
