GNU2308 ... you are replying to a 2006 post. TSA rules may have changed since then. www.tsa.gov

LOL! I always love when some newbie will revive an old thread that is so not even relevant.

At least this one is still relevant.

As for the 3-1-1......... if you have a lot of meds you CAN take more than 1 quart sized bag. You can even take a gallon size bag and more than 1 if it is all holding your required meds. When traveling w/ the whole family I usually have 2 gallon sized ziploc bags for all of our meds. This is perfectly fine and I've never had one single TSA agent say one negative word to me at all. As a matter of fact two weeks ago when it was just my daughter and I flying and I had 2 gallon size ziploc bags with our meds and the TSA agents were previewing everyones bins before they went thru the screener and she came by ours and looked and smiled and said, "PERFECT! I wish everyone was this organized."

Oh, and you can take chapstick now thru and no problems at all.

Chapstick, lipstick, eyeliner, mascara, they don't care about them, and they don't need to be in your 3-1-1 bag. Heck, a couple of .5 ounce sample size tubes of handcream and hand sanitizer get ignored as well by them. They are really looking for larger bottles of liquids and gels.

Had the experience recently to escort my elderly parents on a family vacation. They had not flown in 12 years. I thought they were well-briefed on the security procedures and that I had answered all their questions thoroughly. Somehow, my suggestion to empty pockets and put everything in the carry-on BEFORE we reached security went unheeded...especially by my father. He never was a very good listener. My husband passed through easily as did I, Mom was a bit slower. Dad was taking FOREVER. Finally I went back to check on him. Apparently this is what he removed before going through the x-ray scanner: shoes, hat, glasses, belt, watch, old tickets, handkerchief, chapstick, wallet, coin purse, pill bottles, BANANA, camera, cell phone, pens, nail clippers.
Next time, no cargo pants for him!

LOL!!!!
He must travel w/ my mother in law. Her and her sister (both in their upper 70's) flew for the first time in decades last Thanksgiving. Mind you we booked them on Southwest out of Dallas Love Field which is a small airport. Told them all about the carry-on rules and how big the carry-on can be......... I'm pretty sure my MIL's purse that she carries daily is over the weight limit for even checked baggage. And she probably DOES have a kitchen sink in there somewhere. I would have hated to have been behind them at security. Ends up my MIL's bag she had for her carry-on in addition to her VERY LARGE purse was TOO overstuffed and she had to go back to the baggage check to put stuff in the bag she had already checked UGH! I forgot the stuff she was telling us that they told her she could not take thru security that she had with her.
