Emirates is one of the 9 airlines on which U.S. officials have banned passengers from bringing electronics on board from certain Middle Eastern and African airports into the U.S.
In an 18-second Twitter video posted Tuesday morning, they asked, “Who needs tablets and laptops anyway?” referring to some of the key items that the U.S. Department of Homeland Security now prohibits on certain flights, including some Emirates routes. Check out the video below.

You will see actress Jennifer Aniston starring in the video, she showcases the airline’s in-flight entertainment system, which will be your only option to survive boredom in the flight.
“Let us entertain you,” the air carrier says, which we have to believe is code for “We know this sucks and you just want your laptop.”
