I don’t think electro locks mean it’s “sorted” at all. On 75% of flights my laptop bag is under the seat in front of me and plenty of passengers have wheeled bags under seats to rest feet on.
Compared to 20 years ago part of the challenge is the quantity of laptops, iPads etc on board and general concern about what will happen to these. In fact I saw on the local TV last night someone saying that 2 days later they had still not been reunited with their gear. Pretty poor effort on that front as the plane had been shifted and parked up.
