Default ***** TSA Regulations - 10 August 2006 *****

Everybody,

Please see this thread on the "Cruise Dress and Packing" board regarding TSA regulations that went into effect this morning due to a foiled plot to attack airplanes with liquid explosives.

Norm.

Thank you for that information Norm
Everyone you need to re-pack your carry-on.
The TSA article specifies that any kind of liquid or gel items will not be allowed in your carry-on - this means, shampoo, conditioner, gel, toothpaste anything of that consistency will have to go into your checked baggage.
You cannot even bring a bottle of water aboard to drink.

Yep, only applies to the planes right now. However, I just saw on the news that they mentioned its being considered banning all electrical items as well; cell phones, i-pods, laptops, games, etc. They would have to go below the plane should they decide to put this in effect.

cassandra,

However, I just saw on the news that they mentioned its being considered banning all electrical items as well; cell phones, i-pods, laptops, games, etc. They would have to go below the plane should they decide to put this in effect.

British authorities have banned iPods, GameBoys, laptops, and other portable electonic devices on flights departing from the United Kingdom.

I would believe that U. S. authorities did consider such a ban, in the past tense, but concluded that it's not necessary, and the British authorities probably will modify their policy in a few days. Realistically, the plotters apparently planned to use detonators disguised as portable electronic devices to detonate liquid explosives. Of course, a detonator can't do much harm if there's nothing to detonate so the ban on liquids in the cabin should be adequate.

The hitorical record shows that government agencies invariably overreact during a crisis and then back off after the bureaucrats have time to assess the situation and come up with a more considered policy. We saw this in the reaction to the "9/11" attack, for example, with random searches and a requirement to show official identification at the gate as well as thorough searches and identification checks at the security checkpoint, armed National Guard troops on patrol or watch in and around passenger terminals, etc. that have since disappeared.

Norm.

Also remember when you buy that duty free liqour. You now need a way to pack it so it will not get broke...

Very good point.

You can check it, but it would be risky and very easy to swipe it.

Irish Shark,

I think you missed the point. The new regulation also requires that "duty free" liquor be packed in your checked luggage when you recheck your luggage after clearing customs. At airports where the exit from the customs inspection area is on the "air side" of the security checkpoint, terminating passengers also will have to do this nd clear security to leave the airport after clearing customs.

Norm.
