The TSA has eased the rules a tiny bit


#1

Check out TSA | Transportation Security Administration for a slight change in carry on stuff. You can now bring a some travel size things in a one qt ziplock bag. And liquids bought in the secured area can now be brought onto the plane.

From the web site
The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) announced today it is adjusting its total ban on liquids, gels and aerosols effective Tuesday, September 26. There are two significant changes: Travelers will be allowed to carry travel-size toiletries (3 ounce or less) that fit comfortably in ONE quart-size, clear plastic, zip-top bag through security checkpoints. Travelers may also bring items, including beverages, purchased in the secure, boarding area on-board the aircraft.

My DD is so happy she can get milk for her DD to bring onto the plane now.

That’s good news but I think I would still check most of my girlie things because I wouldn’t want to mess with it. Bringing drinks with you is good news, that will make a lot of parents happy.

Thanks for the update. I do like to pack my make-up in my carry-on so this is good news for me.

I think it’s great for those quick trip people who only use a carry on bag.

Be sure to check out the site before you go. The show a one qt bag with travel bottles of toothpaste, shampoo, stuff like that. I don’t know about make-up.

That’s good. On my trip to Boston, I didn’t want to check baggage (connecting flight). So I had to buy all my stuff in Boston and pitch it before my flight back.

Not too mention trying to gulp down a HOT coffee 5 minutes to bording.

Also, on my trip, TSA set up a table at the gate and rifled through select persons’ luggage (This was AFTER going through security and after transfering flights.).

I wonder if all the airport stores are now raising prices on bottles of water??!!

I remember when this first happened some stores just closed up because people couldn’t buy stuff to bring on board.

I noticed a lot of places outside of security closed up. At one airport, they had disabled all beverage vending machines inside security.
