Mon Nov 08, 2004 3:48 am

Hi, a friend of mine of flying to Cai with KLM... well in fact moving there..
he is trying to take with him his safe box not that big about 20 inchees wide and about 8-9kilos
However the batery died, he replaced new ones and the system has reset itself up and he ahsnt got the keys he is wondering if he can take it on board the plane, nothing IN the safe just some papers and coins....
Just when it will be X-rayed its all metal maybe you cant see whats inside?
not sure
any help witll be appreciated
Next destinations, Suarabaya, beirut, paris, Accra

Well the obvious answer is talk to KLM, but in these days I`m sure they won`t allow anything like that. More to the point, why would he take it with him if he can`t open it? This doesn't make sense. And on arrival , what does he tell Customs? "Don't worry, you don't need to look in there?" Good luck!

If he cannot open it,then they are not going to let him through...you just about have to open your laptops,turn them on,and play a game of checkers just to get it through....plus they could not detect what could be in the envelops, could be a powder of some type,and they might not believe him carring a safe without a combination
i can see for 80 miles
