  • Best Answer:

    I've flown frequently with the iPad2 (on-board, not checked luggage). No problems whatsoever.

  • Yes, I have flown a few times too with the smart cover. No problems!

  • I'm not too sure on this, but my best guess is that it would be allowed. Since the iPad 2 itself has a magnet, that would mean it wouldn't be allowed too (which it is). So my best guess is yes. If you want a definite answer, I'd suggest calling your airline.

  • I think so. Because I brought an iPad 1 with case that has magnet and it is allowed. so I guess there's no issue with bringing the Smart Cover onboard.

  • 4 flights to and from Hawaii, airport security does not even want you to take the iPad out of your backpack. Laptops must still be placed in a separate plastic tub.
