RJ alerts its pax with initial details of the new bans. I'm sure there is a lot more to come.
It appears to be a temporary ban and involves flights from 13 countries
And from the KLM website
United States and Canada - electronic devices in hand baggageFor flights from Amsterdam Airport Schiphol, or from Paris – Charles de Gaulle to destinations in the United States or in Canada, all battery-operated electronic devices in hand baggage will undergo an extra check. At the gate, these devices will need to be taken out of their sleeves or covers, be switched on and be shown to be operative.
Not sure of the above is new or not

Some on FT are suspecting fake news. Here is an article by the Guardian
I am reading that it affects 13 *airports* in the ME/Africa rather than countries. No US carriers affected. Order from DHS who are still refusing to comment. Carriers have 96 hrs to implement (rather than earlier reports that the ban would only last 96 hrs).
Commentary that this may put a lot of Lithium Ion batteries into the hold which would normally be in the cabin ie. not a great idea.
It makes it easier for the thieves to get their hand on them.
Everything tastes better when served with Krug by a Singapore girl!
