This ban has NOTHING to do with what logo is painted on the aircraft, but depends entirely on the airports involved.
Flying from Paris to Chicago? Middle-Eastern and American airlines have the same rules -- electronics allowed, even on a Middle-Eastern airline. Flying from Istanbul to New York? Once again, same rules for Middle-Eastern and American airlines -- no electronics, even on the American airline.
So, explain to me how this is supposed to prefer one airline over another? I am really waiting to hear this one.
