I was wondering if any of you would be able to help me out with telling me what types of food I would be able to bring on the plane?

Specifically I would like to know about yogurts and cut fruit.

and also on that note how about whole fruits such as mangos?

thanks,
A380US

Anything you buy past the security checkpoint can be brought on the airplane.

Getting through security though, the yougurt is a no-go (unless, of course, you keep it under 3 ounces!). Cut fruit is fine, as is any solid food.

Just remember if you're going international, most countries (and Hawaii) have rules prohibiting the importation of certain meat/agricultural products.

But what about a whole coconut, since it has more than 3oz of liquid inside it?  Wink

No fruit to/from Hawai'i.

As people have already said, anything you can get through security.

As far as common courtesy goes, I would avoid foods with strong odors which might disturb other passengers, food that is extremely messy or foods which are common allergens (peanuts, shellfish, etc.)

That's why you put the lime in the coconut...

If you land (deplane) with them, they might (in most cases) be prohibited. As long as you eat them (or dispose of it) onboard, you are good.

I bring food with me on the plane all the time, but dispose of it prior to disembarking.

You can bring fruit on the plane to Hawai'i, you can't land (get off the plane) with it (you need to either eat it or dispose of it before getting off the plane). Hawai'ian Ag (riculture) is very strict. Leaving Hawai'i, all bags go through agriculture inspection.

common courtesy goes

Those being key words.

I think one of the "worst offenders" I ever saw during my traveling days was the guy who boarded a Delta MD80 with a box full of Varsity chillicheesedogs and onion rings; I'm sure he would have had his frosted orange if he could've gotten it past security.

The looks he got from not only the other passengers, but the crew as he made his way down to the last row of the plane were murderous.

I bet the back end of that plane smelled of grease and onion rings for days.

That reminds of a few flights from IAH where families bust out the big box of Popeye's Chicken! Love that chicken from Popeye's!  bigthumbsup 

I remember hearing about flights either from GUA or SAL to the US and passengers bring on Pollo Compero which would provide a fragrant inflight experience!  melting

Baggage claim in customs smelled like the lobby of one of the restaurants. That and when you boarded a plane that just got in from GUA or SAL as a crew change, you knew where it came from immediately. Kind of salivated and was a little sad no one left any for us.
