Does anyone know what the current rules are?

I had my hand luggage opened last year and the asked if I minded letting them keep my 250ml can of Right Guard. It was all done very politely as if I had a choice. So the lady opened the day sac and took the can.

I only use that sac as hand luggage and for overnights - but had not used it since my last trip abroad - and when I arrived and emptied my stuff out into the bathroom, found another can of Right Guard left from six months earlier.

Security at its best!

Anyway, returning to the point - what are you permitted to carry now.

Flying with Easy Jet from EDI.

I am pretty sure an ounce of tobacco in old money became 25g. :-D

Thanks guys - left rep for both - and for anyone else who expands relevantly or humourously on the theme.

How would they regard a 1/3 full can of Right Guard? :-D :-D :-D

Joking aside - I guess its roll on time - then buy a can once I get there.

you cannot take aerosols into the cabin, that will be why it was removed, nothing to do with its contents, put it in your suitcase

It's the container that can't exceed 100ml - not the contents - half full 200ml bottle not acceptable.

Defining liquid is a bit iffy as had a small jar of Branston pickle (being carried as a gift!) confiscated under "liquid" rules - personally wouldn't fancy drinking the stuff!!!!

Its funny I have been taking aerosols in the cabin for years and it never occurred to me.

In the past I used to fly privately and luggage was normally shoved behind the seat with a bungee round it, and it was only if there were four in the cabin that the storage area would be used. (Hold seems a bit enthusiastic given the size).

So is it limited to one liquid item - does anyone know a link?

As I am now looking at a small aftershave and a roll on.

I always have a bottle of aftershave, but its normally inside two or three pairs of socks.

So as I guess the regulations came in about August 2006, I think I have flown four or five times since and the only objection has been the Right Guard.

You can have as many items as you want items upto 100ml container size in the clear bag, aslong as you can physically seal the bag up.

That wastes drinking time. :whistling: :whistling:

I remember hearing the chances that there would be a bomb on a plane were ten million to one. So the chances of there being two bombs was one hundred million million to one.

Accordingly - by taking a bomb onto a plane yourself - you were massively lowering the odds of there being another. :-D :-D :-D :-D

Not true, aerosols are allowed in the cabin.

Ok...Ibiza...


I have travelled through various airports around the world ... Only problem I had was at JFK..when passing for a connecting flight. I had my anti perspirant 250ml...which was taken away even though it had about 30ml or so remaining in it..

If you want to take something...and you cant find smaller size...Just print a 100ml sticker (ahem) and stick on where it says the actual weight...;) as most of the checking staff just look for a label description of weight.. simple ;)

100ml is a official limit and you would pass ok many airports but not through US ones..

Aerosols have a highly flammable icon....you may wanna cover that up,.

sorry for giving out wrong information, whenever i have travelled always put anything like that in suitcase, as thought that was where it is supposed to be
