Aerosols are tricky. TSA does not allow them "except" for personal toiletries and in limited quantity.

My best advice would be to play it safe and go with a lotion or pump spray sunscreen.

Take care,
Mike

aerosals can be tricky when flying anyway, have heard stories of aerosal cans bursting with the change of pressure, i think this is a rare occurance, but it might be a good idea to go with a lotion or pump spray and put it into your checked baggage. If you love your aerosal sunscreen and have to have it, then pack it in your checked baggage

The ships have no restrictions on this, but the airlines do.

>> It's permitted without restriction in checked luggage.

>> In a carry-on, all toiletries, cosmetics, etc., must be in containers no larger than 3 fl. oz. and all such containers must be in a see-through zip-lock plastic bag no larger than one quart. When you go through security at the airport, you must remove the zip-lock plastic bag from your luggage and put it through the screening machine separately.

The interesting thing to me is that not all airports/airlines maintain the same strict security . I actually complained to one airline that I was about to board re their nearly nil security check.I advised that there is greater checking going to a government building .They were not thrilled with my statement .This was in NYC at a major airport .

Since cruising for me requires flying, I just use zip-lock bags for everything. So far, its worked nicely. There was a time although that I think we all used to put that kind of thing in a carry-on....

Accidently hair gel and sun tan lotion were packed in our carry on bag...and I begged the woman to let me take my hair gel.. but no.. this 75 woman looks like a terrorist.. and don't tell me it's the rules gezz..It did not put me in a good mood the rest of the flight home I'll tell you..I've had TSA men open expensive high end makeup that was in a plastic bag and not screw it back properly and it leaked..he knew..it said the ounces on the front.. and lets not even talk about Parrot Pop who is treated like a criminal because the knee replacement in his leg goes off. Its another reason to cruise from home ports

The inspectors are NOT supposed to open containers.

But actually, it's no strain at all. Just put the lotions and potions in a checked bag, to which the restrictions on carry-on do not apply.

Incidentally, anybody travelling overseas who buys liquor in a duty-free shop should be aware that (1) you must clear U. S. Immigration and Customs at the first airport where you land here in the States and (2) you must put them duty-free liquids into your checked luggage to go through security after clearing customs -- which means not only if you have a connecting flight, but also if you arrive at an airport where you have to exit through the secure area after clearing customs.

Norm.

Angry TSA

'NOT SUPPOSED TO OPEN CONTAINERS".. now you tell me..In Boston a TSA opened up expensive make up an didn't close it.. After y ears of flying of course I know it should have been in checked luggage, IT WAS A MISTAKE..I had sent the wrong bag through and these items were in a mesh bag hidden away..Lets not even talk about the hassle they give Parrot Pop with a new knee who goes through the airports in a wheel chair..I just find these underpaid or are they overpaid much too zealous in dealing with senior citizens.

Actually, most of the TSA people are a breath of fresh air compared to the private security screeners that preceded them. When TSA took over, I noticed two changes almost immediately -- (1) they are considerably more competent and (2) they are considerably more polite to the travelling public.

I fly often enough so I pretty well "know the ropes" and thus move through security quite exepditously. If you have an exceptional circumstance, the TSA staff seem to be pretty willing to assist you -- but the key is to tell them about the situation before you set off metal detectors rather than after. A few years ago, I returned home from a cruise to Hawai'i with a very bad gout attack -- so bad that I doubted my ability to put my shoes on if I took them off at the security checkpoint. I explained the situation to the staff at the entrance to the checkpoint, and they directed me to an end station that was set up to deal with special situations. I got competely wanded, but everybody was very pleasant and helpful -- and they did not make me take off the shoes. I suspect that the secret to your husband's knee replacement is the same thing -- tell the staff about it before he steps into the metal detector.

Norm.

Gentlemen's Warehouse and K & G I thought would be more to your liking I've seen some great white dinner jackets there.. Yes, Parrot Pop does tell them ahead and since his ankle is so bad he also wears the horrible clogs for taking on and off." TSA staff seem to be pretty willing to assist you"!! Surely you jest Norm...What they did to a little crippled woman in a wheelchair was disgusting.. actually picking her up and running the wand over her... I wanted to cry...it was absolutely cruel.. I must say I have very,very rarely found them to be "pleasant and helpful".. just once going through Logan Airport..and that agent was like breath of fresh air. Guess I have a chip on my shoulder when it comes to them and I go through h olding my breath.
