Airline Garuda Indonesia is urging passengers not to take any pictures or videos onboard its flights.
The Indonesian national carrier circulated an internal memo banning the practice on 14 July, writing: "It is not permissible to document activities on the plane, either in the form of photos or videos, by the cabin crew or passengers."
The letter was shared online and quickly went viral, according to Indonesian news site Kumparan.
However, the edict has since been softened, with a revised internal letter issued on 16 July stating that, rather than being "prohibited" from taking pictures onboard the aircraft, travellers are now being "urged" not to do so.
The original notice reportedly said that passengers could be "sanctioned" by the airline for breaking the rules; it is unclear whether this is still the case.
