Checked the BA web site but couldn't find anything specific concerning razors in carry ons.
Flew to the states last year with a razor in my carry on but didn't know if anything had changed.Would hate to have it confiscated either here or when I get to DFW.
Sorry if this question has been asked/answered a million times but I couldn't get the forum search facility to work and I leave early tomorrow morning.

I have flown several times recently...sometimes with checked baggage, and sometimes with just a carry on. In the case of just carry on, I had all my toiletries in the bag, including a "safety razor". I was prepared to have them tell me "that'll have to go in checked baggage", but NOT ONCE did they say anything at SAN, BWI, MSP, or ORD.
I can't speak for international flights, but I don't think anything has changed. Call the airline and ask them, just to be sure. Be sure you say "safety razor" as that's a BIG difference to them.

Yeah as far as I know, something like a regular razor blade that most people use, like a mach3 or something, is fine. As for BA, I just flew them in June and July between ORD and LHR, and had it in my carry on both ways and was fine.

Thanks PanAm I guess ringing BA would be a good idea was just a little concerned about getting it confiscated at DFW on the return leg.But if you have had no problems then I would say there hasn't been a blanket policy change.
