I'm talking about the ban on containers with a certain number of ounces of liquid in carryons.

I couldn't find a clear answer anywhere, and I thought I heard something about them removing the ban..

IF it's still in effect, what are the rules? What is the max number of ounces and what is the rule for having to have a ziplock bag?


Thanks so much. And if you can't tell, yes, I'm flying tomorrow

The reason it's 3.4 and not 3 or 4 is because Americans simply cannot comprehend the metric system. It's 100ml, and it changed from 3 ounces to better line up with the rest of the world. Frankly, 3.4 ounces of explosive componants are too much. I agree, however, that the restrictions (like the shoe bomber's effect at the checkpoint) were a victory for the terrorists, if only one of inconveniencing millions...

You really need to learn how to use Google  

The TSA website was the first thing to come up when I tried "liquid ban", "TSA liquids", "Airport liquids" .... etc.

What happens if you have big toothpaste tube (say 8oz),, but there is only 2oz left inside?

They take it away. Explain to me the logic behind that!

I saw on the show Futureweapons on Discovery a device that can tell if a liquid is dangerous or not. In fact, China is uisng the device at the Olympics this summer.

It is a part of a baggage screening machine, and it can even tell if a can of pop is regular or diet. Apparently, it is able to determine the liquid's density and molecular structure, even while in a container inside a suitcase, and then take that information and run it against an extensive database of liquids. It will locate every liquid container on the screen and the mark the safe liquids with a green outline and the dangerous ones red.

Supposedly, TSA is buying these devices to replace the old x-ray machines at checkpoints, but no one will say when they will go into service or the order in which airports receive them.

aaaargh! Happened to me upon my last trip. Had two peas of toothpaste left in the 175ml tube, just enough to refresh upon arrival... If it is written 175 ml on the tube, it goes to the trash, even if it's almost empty.

Somewhat depressing.

This was not a U.S.-bound or -originating flight but I recently flew MEX-GRU with AM and I had in my laptop case a bottle of water of 500 ml or so that I bought once I had gotten past security. When the security agent who reviewed the contents of my laptop case at the gate prior to embarking saw it, he asked me if I could please take a sip from my water and after I did so he let me in with it.


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