Royal Jordanian Has an Amazing Response to the US Electronics Travel Ban

Posted in In the Air, International, Jordan, Royal Jordanian

What do you do when the US institutes yet another version of their travel ban (this time for electronics)? Well, if you’re Royal Jordanian, you tap into your inner Maya Angelou and post a little poem on Twitter. It may not win this year’s Nobel prize, but I appreciate that they’re speaking up. To be honest, I wasn’t expecting this kind of humor from the brand. I like it, Royal Jordanian! Keep it coming!


And as far as awards go, we Americans aren’t going to win any diplomacy prizes if we keep instituting these bans on our international neighbors.

If you’ve got a poem to share with the TSA, feel free to share it in the comments.



  1. First the US.
    Then the UK.
    I’ll give it a shot.
    A poet I am not.
    Electronics we must ban.
    Why we must I’m no fan.
    Many will try to blame Trump.
    For our laptops we must dump.
    Check them to be broken like a fibula.
    Or Risk danger from Al Qaeda Arabian Peninsula.
