Default ***** Another TSA Update - 17 August 2006 *****

Everybody,

TSA has published yet another clarification of the new guidelines regarding liquids and gels. Ladies, the gel-filled brassiers need to go in checked luggage unless they are medical (prosthetic) devices.

The TSA has revised the list of permitted and forbidden items for travel by air to incorporate the recent changes.

Norm.

Default Another tsa update

Last year I was pulled out of line on two flights for scissors. The very next week they were allowed. Now no lighters, but up to four books of matches and you can take tiny screwdrivers to repair eyeglasses, but don't bring an eyeglass case. Can bring tweezers, nail clippers and plastic knives, but I wouldn't because they may change that on you too. Is there any intelligent life out there????

Betty

LisaK,

i just went back and read the permitted items list and it states that gel-filled bras may be worn thru security screening and onto the airplane

The list of items permitted "[t]o ensure the health and welfare of certain air travelers" in the above link states: "Gel-filled bras and similar prostethics" (emphasis added). Both the context and the conjunction with "similar prosthetics" imply a gel-filled bra is permitted only as prosthetic device.

I would strongly advise ladies who wear gel-filled bras reasons of enhancement, rather than visual correction of a deformity, not to wear them to the airport when flying.

BTW, I see that TSA also now explicitly permits gel-filled wheelchair cushons.

Norm.
