The U.S. Transportation Security Administration announced on Monday, July 17, that it has lifted the ban on passengers of Saudi Arabian Airlines carrying electronics, including laptops, on board U.S.-bound flights.
Saudi Arabia's flagship carrier was the last airline to face in-cabin electronics restrictions. The original ban affected airports in Morocco, Egypt, Jordan, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Kuwait and the United Arab Emirates, and Turkey.
In June, the U.S. introduced increased security requirements for all airlines as opposed to expanding the electronics ban and has been dropping restrictions from carriers that boost security.
What's Hot On TheStreet
In a July 6 trademark application, Amazon subsidiary Amazon Technologies Inc. revealed it's planning "prepared food kits composed of meat, poultry, fish, seafood, fruit and/or and [sic] vegetables...ready for cooking and assembly as a meal," as well as primarily grain-based offerings.
The product's tagline: "We do the prep. You be the chef." Amazon already sells other companies' meal kits, including Tyson Foods Inc.'s (TSN) Tyson Tastemakers. Martha Stewart is even offering meal kits on Amazon Fresh, the company's grocery delivery service. But, this may be the first hint of something bigger for Amazon, which would put it in direct competition with newly minted IPO Blue Apron (APRN) .
