KUALA LUMPUR, September 4 – As more international airlines impose restrictions on MacBook Pro units withdrawn, several Malaysian airlines have announced such a ban as a precaution. A few months ago, Apple issued a download notice for a limited number of 15 ″ MacBook Pro devices that may contain batteries that are prone to overheating and present a risk of fire safety.
If your 15 ″ MacBook Pro is below the download list, you do not have the right to check-in and carry the device on board Malindo Air and AirAsia flights. Passengers who can provide official documentation that the battery has been replaced by the download program will be allowed to carry the affected MacBook Pro on board.
For Malaysia Airlines, you are not allowed to bring the MacBooks concerned into your checked baggage. You could still travel with him, but he must be placed in your luggage until further notice. Like other airlines, you need to provide documentation or a receipt at check-in or upload to prove that the battery has been replaced.

If you are not sure if the MacBook Pro is affected, you can check the serial number on the Apple website.

Apple provides battery replacement for free to Apple authorized service providers and the service may take three to five days. – SoyaCincau
