We're leaving San Diego on October 28th and will arrive in Valpariaso, Chile on November 14th...wish we could continue with you but we will be flying home. I have been trying to find out what the new airline regulations are concerning our flight. I read on another site that one woman was told by her travel agent that there is no more curbside check-in, no carry-on luggage, no purses (wallet size only permitted), no camera bags, no knives or sissors regardless of size or type. This puts me in a position of not knowing what to do. I am diabetic and a serious photographer. I will not check my medications, diabetic supplies and camera with my luggage. I have e-mailed American Airlines but due to the current conditions, I'm not sure when, or if ever I will hear from them. I have contacted my travel agent who will contact HAL to see what they know. But, even if we are told one thing before we leave by HAL, when we get to Santiago, Chile and head home, we may be told something entirely different by the airport officials. I'm getting very nervous about this whole trip.
Does anyone know what is going on with the new safety regulations?
