Is this the ORD AA fire??

They're banned from planes for good reason, so if someone got one on anyway, yes they probably will delay. Given that it is a government ban the airline could get in trouble for knowingly departing anyway with one on board. And they should.

No, that was an engine fire, either due to a mechanical issue in the engine or something ingested into the engine.

note7 is banned on flight. Not just turn it off...

Just toss off any wankers with android phones or tablets.

Are people responding to the behavioral economics component and saying “well Biden didn’t invite Tesla because the head of the United auto workers union didn’t want him there, that’s a bad sign”.

MBB - I’m a current senior graduating from a top public school, and I am debating on whether to accept an offer to a masters (non mba) to an Ivy League. One of the factors into my decision is what is the propensity that the resume gets pulled for on campus mbb recruiting, given that undergrads are probably applying as well? I have big brand internships already, and my undergrad school probably scores a 2/3 for brand name. Will recruiting teams put more emphasis on your latest or 1st degree?
