You can't. Unless it was bought from the airport in a sealed packet. Can't take homemade stuff.

i have flown from birmingham and manchester and never been allowed through with food, only food purchased once through the gates in departures can be taken onboard

well, horses for courses
been abroad five times in last 12 months and no problem any time at newcastle



i think the OP should just make a few sarnies and take them through, what's the worst that can happen?

personally would prefer one that has been kept refrigerated, im assuming the op lives a massive distance form the airport as the need to maqke butties for a 2 hour flight, add the 2 hour check in, thats 4 hours without food, bet he needs two seats too - pmsl

What about different combos found ]here

Absolute rubbish, of course you can take your own sarnies, I take mine on every trip, I go abroad about 7 or 8 times a year.

I just buy a bottle of water from airside shops.

I buy the overpriced food on the plane just so I can complain how tasteless it is lol (flight time: 1:30hr)

No problem with Easyjet, Ryanair or BMI Baby.

Ask the security officer to show where in the rules you cannot take sandwiches, they will not be able to.

it isnt the planes that stop you, its when you go through passport control, or whatever it is called, have seen many poeple have food removed and binned

I think you mean airlines.

Passport control do not look through your belongings either.

I always take food on the plane.
The only time I have seen food binned is when you arrive at the other end.

I think that you are getting confused sassie, it is security that say what you can or cannot take through, the items that are not allowed are listed on the airport web site, sandwiches are not mentioned on any UK Airport Security list, so you can take them.
