What are the liquids/gels/food restrictions at Changi Airport?
I will be there in November and I am planning to bring a nice supply of Kaya jam back home (love this stuff) I will be travelling on Jetstar to HKG and thus being a low-cost carrier I do not plan to check any bags and just travel with hand luggage.
Will I be fine passing thru with 3-5 jars? or will it be confiscated? I don´t know if they consider this liquids or gels.
Good question! They are increasing their prices like there's no tomorrow. SIN-CAN used to cost like S$600 in the past (in 2008) and now it's over S$900! That's like almost a 40% increase, not forgetting to mention other routes like SIN-EWR last time in Executive Economy was just a little over S$2000 and now SIN-FRA-JFK is asking for S$2900, close to S$3000! I could have easily taken BR SIN-TPE-EWR (or JFK in the future) for only S$2000 in PREMIUM economy!
I actually commented on this on their FB page regarding their post about purchasing 8 more 77Ws. Though, I am sure it'll go unnoticed.
