Well, the baggage rules are changing again from next week....

Larger bags will be allowed on board, and passengers will be able to take some liquids through security from Tuesday

Finally, some good news for passengers  Smile

<< Ryanair announced last month it was seeking compensation of about £3million from the government over airport delays resulting from the increased anti-terror measures >>

Words fail me. The contested measures must have reported Ryanair hefty additional revenues... And on top of that, this??

I say...

Just how much more confusing can it become for the passengers? Very few UK pax could state what they can carry on the a/c (whether hold or cabin) so check-in will be a nightmare for some weeks to come. However we are all in full agreement that these steps are for the good of all - however inconvenient.

I was at LHR on Thursday 7th and again on Monday 11th. On Tuesday, you could only bring one carry on bag not bigger than 35x45x16 cm. into the U.K. Naturally, all liquids were forbidden... a lady who had bought a bottle of booze at the Duty Free shops in MEX before the BA flight to LHR had her bottle confiscated by the BA ground staff before boarding. In addition, if for some reason the x-ray people at LHR (for connecting pax) found any liquid inside your carry on bags, they'd take it away from you.

Monday was an altogether different story. When connecting from DUS, I did see that the rule of no liquids and one-small-bag-only was being thoroughly enforced at the x-ray checkpoint in T1. However, before boarding my flight to MEX, I had plenty of time to see the shops at T4 and all pax flying to all places except for the U.S. could buy any perfume, liqueur, soda, toothpaste, etc. at the shops and bring it inside the cabin.

I think the restrictions will be relaxed little by little.



Next flights: MEX-GRU (AM 77E), GRU-GIG (JJ A320), SDU-CGH (G3 73H), GRU-MEX (JJ A332).

Uhmmm...no we're not in agreement. It is a stupid rule that costs me an hour in each direction now because I have to check my bag. I spend enough time in airports as it is so any more time now that I have to check bags is a pain in the butt.

I can fly SIN to SYD with all the damn liquids I want but I can't fly SIN-EWR with any possibility of liquid because it might be bad. Ridiculous!

A very clear example of how inconsistent security is around the world.

I would much rather see one standard agreed upon that can be implemented at all airports, rather than differering standards across not just countries, but sometimes terminals within a single airport.

I can understand what you'd say that. However, wouldn't a common security standard world-wide make it easier for terrorists to find a 'workaround'? By having varying degrees of security based on the level of threat in a designated location, it makes it harder for terrorists to 'beat the system'?

States of alert are reviewed on a regular basis.

Several people have claimed this... This makes no sense to me. High degrees of security everywhere beats varying degrees of security every single time.

I can see pro's and con's for both sides. However, the hardest part would be getting low-risk airports to ramp up security to New York or London levels. Can't see that happening

Not soon enough. My shampoo and shaving cream aren't going to kill anyone on my flight from ATL-SFO or anywhere else I need to fly in the coming months. Arrgghhh! I'm really beginning to hate the chore of travel as much as I hate the terrorists who keep making life more troublesome.
