Airline Lufthansa fluctuates between banning the use of AirTags on luggage and allowing them.

Lufthansa tweeted that Apple’s tracking devices in checked baggage were frowned upon, but then did a quick 360 and said the AirTag, with its low transmitting power and battery, poses no security risks.

The company posted a tweet that now allows its use. It was strange how the airline considered the AirTag unsafe during flights, despite international regulations that were not.

Tweets The internet started circulating when the airport said they were “banning activated AirTags from baggage” because they were “considered dangerous and should be turned off.”

The company then explained how baggage trackers are subject to dangerous goods regulations under ICAO guidelines. Lufthansa recommends deactivating the trackers during the flight if they are linked to checked baggage.

It turned out that the reference to the battery regulation was wrong as it says that the battery must be more than two ounces to be included.
