Dreamweavin . You're making it out to be a lot worse than it is. It's amazing that you are in the center of so many bad experiences. Either you're just one unlucky person, someone who thrives on conflict, or you're making it up. Millions of people go skyward everyday, and you seem to know most of them, lol.

Mother of 2 seems to have the right idea. Sounds like she plans ahead and follows the plan. I've noticed while waiting in line, that the people who keep screwing up the flow aren't the ogfficers, it's the passengers that have no clue what they're doing. What I've seen is that a check is called, an officer comes up, the two people walk off and the officer pulls out the unknown contents and the the situation is resolved. I don't fly alot but what i've seen is just ziplock bags are left in the bag. Sounds like a big waste of time for the officers who need to be looking for guns and knives and things that go boom. But no, they need more and more officers because people Moderator cut: No reason to get personal !can't remember to take their crap outta their bags, lol. And before anyone talks any trash about the TSA not finding anything, check this out. TSA | Transportation Security Administration | U.S. Department of Homeland Security
TSA Week at a Glance (July 28, 2008 - August 3, 2008) they put new stats every week. And I would imagine that's only half of the things that are found.

I believe DreamWeavin was just giving out information based on her experiences, not necessarily other people's experiences.

Are the airlines very strict as to the dimensions of carry on bags? I have a large camera bag that I want to take with me on an upcoming flight to Canada. It exceeds the dimensions of allowable carry on bags on NWA by a couple inches. Would it have to be checked?

Sorry. Didn't mean to fly off the handle like that. I just get very protective of those guys. Didn't mean any offense. They're just doing their jobs.

As you guys might notice, did I get to work, editing some stuff out....which should never have been put into the equation in the first place.
Don't get personal....we are all adults here.
And, as always, cross-reference (if in doubt) with CD ToS (Terms of Service) rules and guidelines.
Thank you !

Default Can anyone help me? confiscated legal things at security

I recently went to the airport and when I arrived at my destination, I discovered that my entire makeup bag with expensive brushes as well as hair combs and picks, had been confiscated.
The part I am so upset about is, they never said a word to me about it. Is there a place where I could possibly go in the airport to see if I could get it back. What do they do with things they confiscate at the security check? Does anyone know?

If it is missing from checked baggage; it is called Theft---not confiscation!!

You can take hard foods from home like cookies, peanuts, crackers, beef jerky, etc. Not sure about fruit.

You can also take any food stuff you bought (after going through security) with you on the plane, as long as it doesn't exceed the airline's carryon limit.
A week ago I flew through Fiji on the way to Australia. They took my unopened packet of beef jerky and my cheese crackers. I wasn't even entering the country, simply going through on a layover.

They also took my 1" long embroidery scissors, my fingernail clippers, and my embroidery needles. Fiji does not love me
