SriLankan Airlines has advised that Apple has determined that, in a limited number of older generation 15-inch MacBook Pro units, the battery may overheat and pose a fire safety risk. Affected units were sold primarily between September 2015 and February 2017.

“As a safety measure passengers are requested to verify with Apple whether their devices are affected by the recall. They will be requested upon check-in to produce such verifications or proof that the battery has been replaced. In the absence of such verification, their devices will not be allowed in as checked- in or carry-on luggage. In order to verify your device, please follow the link Apple’s 15-inch MacBook Pro Battery Recall Programme,” the airline said in a statement on Wednesday.
