...or is policy at the discretion of the individual airport? I just returned from a trip to IND and received metal utensils at the airport restaurant, but, on a trip to ATL last week, received plastic utensils. What's the deal?

AirMalta has withdrew all metal cutlery from its flights. Also they took away the manicure set from the on board duty free sales.

A good friend was on UAL EWR-SFO last Saturday. She said the knives were gone, but the forks remained. Kind of silly don't you think? Seems like someone could do some real damage with a metal fork -god forbid-.

Forks could be worse because you could use them to stab.

I think banning metal cutlery is really drastic..... Hey, they're still serving refreshments, and wine on planes, right? U can juz take a broken wine bottle, and that would be a much much worse weapon (nobody get any wrong ideas.....)!!!!!!!

I think the whole ban on tweezers, nail clippers, etc. is going a bit overboard. Are the airlines making passengers place their car/house keys in checked luggage?

Many times, when I'm walking through a dark parking lot at night, I'll clench the keychain in the palm of my hand, with the individual keys sticking pointy-side-up between each of my fingers, ready to rake them across a would-be muggers face if necessary. So would keys be considered a "weapon"?

The best solution would be to handcuff all passengers for the duration of the flight. But then again, a flying kick can maime and kill right?
