No, not really!! Google says so...
Sly, I guess they think if it breaks into fire in the cabin they can somehow handle it. Maybe buckets of water?
Water should not be used on any lithium fire because pouring water on a lithium battery fire can make it more difficult to extinguish it because of the reduction of lithium in water, which leads to the release of hydrogen, which is highly flammable; the potential of reigniting a fire is much greater when using water.
Just in case it happens anywhere!!!
What do you do when a lithium battery catches on fire?
If a Class D extinguisher is not available, douse a lithium-metal fire with water to prevent the fire from spreading. For best results dowsing a Li-ion fire, use a foam extinguisher, CO2, ABC dry chemical, powdered graphite, copper powder or soda (sodium carbonate) as you would extinguish other combustible fires.
Isn't that the standard reaction these days...??? JUST PASS THE BUCK>>>... then pickup one's pay cheque...!!!
And nothing from the FAA said anything about the Apple website where the status could be checked. I can't blame the airlines for being over cautious, but the FAA had their head up their a** when then made the advisory.
