Ah, Air Travel…
If you haven’t been listening to the news lately, Scotland Yard recently apprehended several individuals who were plotting to bring explosives onto airplanes on flights departing from Europe. Since this plan “failed”, the good ol’ US Dept. of Homeland Security decided it was time to bring back that wonderful emergency color chart we have known to love. So, our current alert status is yellow. That being the case, passengers are also no longer able to bring certain items into a plane cabin. Certain items… people.
For whatever reason, I seem to be the guru of all news and information to many of my family members and close friends. The rest of you, I commend your ability to pay attention to the news and use the internet for answers. Your skills are extraordinary. No, you just have common sense *insert diabolical laugh*. Anyway, I’ve been continually asked (and argued with) what can and cannot be brought onto a plane. Some think nothing, others believe liquids/gels/anal lubricant and electronic stuff are not allowed.
If you really want to know what the restrictions are, check with your local airport website. That’s right folks, most airports know what the interweb is, and have discovered that people in this day and age often utilize it. I won’t bother to explain what the current restrictions are, so here’s your chance to put your brain to work.
For those of us that reside in Washington State, I have done the needful and provided a link to SeaTac’s updated security restrictions. To the rest of you… take a look at the DHS website.
