This just started today after a foiled attempt in the Mideast. There are TONS of banned items that most people carry-on and are now no longer allowed. I have read about just about everything being confiscated from all passengers and flight crews. I heard all make-up, chapstick, perfume, etc was being confiscated. I also read where in San Fran that bottles of wine are piling up from people that were taking them back w/ them after visiting the area.

No lotions, liquids or gels of any kind allowed. This is from the Homeland Security website:

TSA is immediately implementing the following changes to airport screening procedures:


No liquids or gels of any kind will be permitted in carry on baggage. such items must be in checked baggage. This includes all beverages, shampoo, sun tan lotion, creams, tooth paste, hair gel, and other items of similar consistency.

Exceptions: Baby formula and medicines, which must be presented for inspection at the checkpoint.



Beverages purchased in the boarding area, beyond the checkpoint, must be consumed before boarding because they will not be permitted onboard the aircraft.



Passengers traveling from the United Kingdom to the United States will be subject to a more extensive screening process.


These measures will be constantly evaluated and updated as circumstances warrant.

How every passenger can assist in security:


Pack lightly, without clutter to facilitate easier screening
Arrive earlier than usual at the airport
Cooperate with TSA personnel at checkpoints and with airline personnel at all gates
Be attentive and vigilant to any suspicious activity and report it to authorities

I agree. I would rather spend a little (or a lot) of time to be safe.

This really stinks; I am a complete chapstick addict and if I go more than 30-60 minutes without it I start biting my lips. We don't plan on flying anywhere until Oct/Nov...I'll just have to hope the restrictions lighten up a bit before then.

LOL I know what you're sayin'. I can go longer than 30-60 minutes but I am also an addict. My drug of choice is Blistex Herbal Answer. I'm flying at the end of September.

I saw somewhere on CNN that mother's carrying bottles of milk for their babies may be asked to take a taste of it to prove it is really milk.
