UK -> USA Hand Baggage Rules (VS)

Sun Mar 11, 2007 10:00 pm

Sorry all, I'm being thick, I know these rules are subject to lots of changes but I can't find the link on LHR website to the US specific regulations. Are they still different from ROW?

I'm flying UK->US on March 15th and March 29th.

Thanks, and sorry for my stupidity [its sunday!]

The rules from the UK to the US are the same as from the UK to everywhere else - save perhaps for matches/lighters. I presume you are not transferring to another flight on arrival in the US - if you are, any bottles/liquids obtained in post-Security at London (Duty Free etc) should be placed in your hold baggage at the arrival airport in the US before giving it to the TSA for the connecting flight.
