Delta, Aeroflot, Ban Liquids On Flights To U.S.

Tue Aug 15, 2006 1:38 am

Nothing earth shattering here and probably some of you might have expected the ban on liquids being brought on planes to expand to other airports in other countries. All flights from SVO to the U.S. which are currently flown by Aeroflot and DL have banned all liquids from being brought on board flights. This list includes the usual suspect: shampoo, soap, toothpaste, soda, water, etc.

What other countries/airlines do you think will soon follow? One that comes to mind, if not already done, is the Emirates flight from DXB to JFK.

Huh? This is not just a DL/SU or SVO thing...it's applies to all overseas flights into the US (except for the UK which has more stringent rules), all flights within and from the US...where have you been?  Smile

Quoting Panamair (Reply 1):
where have you been?

I was under the impression, and I dont read every line of every newspaper article, that the ban on liquids on planes was only from the U.K. but now that my old and weary brain has its gears turning once again, i believe the difference is that from or to the U.K. you are not allowed to bring on ANY carry on item on ANY plane, is that correct? Man, what old age and senility does to a person!!

Yes you are correct. Flights from the UK were allowed a plastic bag to put essentials in and thats it. The flights within and to the us ban all liquids except, breastmilk, baby food, 4 oz of presrciption medicine, and other essential non prescription medicine like insilin.
