I just saw this online; apparently the TSA is supposed to hold a press release at 11 AM with more details. Finally, the TSA is getting some common sense into its brain - while we can't take anything through the checkpoints, at least we can buy stuff post-security and bring it on board with us. Now, just watch as the price of a bottle of water skyrockets to $9 or something crazy like that...

Perfect, just in time for my flight in a few weeks.

I was hoping that they would do this and it was just going to be a matter of time before they got the logistics taken care, maybe we will have to show our receipt as proof that we bought it airside?



Is it bad that I get excited to see even a CRJ overfly? Man, what this place does to you

Uhm, according to the info on the TSA website, there will be "refinements". They don't say that things will be relaxed although I certainly hope so!

According to CNN, there will be a change though. You will NOT be allowed to bring water from home, but you MAY purchase it beyond security and bring it on board. Great - now vendors can raise prices even further...

Now if they would let us carry on toothpaste, perhaps > 2 oz sample/travel sizes then as get shampoos at the hotels, we could go back to only carry ons for short trips.
To at least allow someone to bring on water, coffee, sodas purchased at the airport, then that would make life a lot easier.

That's actually the policy at EWR Terminal C. Westfield is the name of the company that runs the concessions in the terminal (they are also the managing company for many malls around the word), and they have a "fair prices" policy for all of the vendors in the terminal. They've actually got signs all over the place advertising it....it makes it really nice to know that you can buy something there with the reassurance that you're not getting ripped off...

Travellers will be allowed to carry travel sized tolitries (3 oz or less) that fit comfortably in 1 qt size, clear plastic, zip top bag through security checkpoints. Theycan also bring beverages that have been purchased in the secure area, on board aircraft.

Theses are the changes.

That's how SEA is ... all restaurants and vendors are required to charge the same price at the airport as outside.

 checkmark  Paying a premium to purchase goods at a airport would not be considered being ripped off.

Keep in mind that alot of the airports have much higher rent fees versus outside the airport. The concession stands at the airports charge a bit more to cover this cost.

PIT has an Eckard behind security. As part of the fair pricing in PA, it has to be the same as other Eckards in the area.

Like what Willbdsp said, PIT has an Eckerd as well as a Bath and Body Works where you can buy stuff.

Interesting that no one has bothered to source the TSA web site, rather just banter about innocuously about what is/is not now authorized?

Lip Balms hasn't been a problem since in over a month . . . since several days after the restrictions went into place.

You can. See the TSA link above.

I didn't see this thread and the one I started was deleted, anyway......

Nice to see TSA is able to change some decisions and try to accommodate pax's needs. However, I have a few questions:

- why do pax still have to remove it from hand baggge and place it in a bin. If it's been determined small amounts are harmless no need to examine it again, right?
- why does everything have to be in a zip-lock see through baggie

And finally....any chance of TSA changing their shoe policy?????

Not to over take the thread and talk about the Air Mall at PIT, but yes, there is an entire mall inside PIT. Before 9/11 (and the Mall at Robinson opened), people in Western Allegheny County, Beaver County and even parts of West Virginia and Ohio would drive to PIT to go shopping. It was one of my favorite hang outs in high school--get dinner, go shopping and watch people and airplanes.


If the items are not packaged in a clear Ziploc bag, will they be collected and tossed? Is this just for organization/ease of getting through security or something else?
