AUGUST 9, 2006 UPDATE ON CARRY-ON AND OTHER LUGGAGE:

 

New restrictions  are being put into effect regarding carry-on luggage and items that can be included in luggage following the Terrorist Threat at Heathrow Airport in London, England on August 9, 2006.

NO LOTIONS OR GELS ALLOWED ON ANY FLIGHTS IN THE UNITED STATES.

Some airlines in UK are saying no hand luggage at all.

It is yet to be seen the further impact on restrictions regarding travel in North America.

Check with the airlines you use before packing to be certain.

This would be in addition to the restrictions below already in place.
This is a continually breaking news story that is being covered by all the major media.  BBC is particularly informative, however all of the major media will have information on their websites.

Can I take it with me?

TSA changes rules for items allowed on commercial flights

(CNN) -- It's no surprise that loaded weapons and explosives are strictly off-limits in airports and on flights. But the guidelines on some more common items -- such as knitting needles, matches or cigar cutters -- might be less obvious to travelers.

The Transportation Security Administration implemented new screening procedures Thursday at the nation's airports, allowing passengers to carry some previously prohibited items aboard planes. Scissors with a cutting edge that measures 4 inches or less and tools less than 7 inches long are among the items that are now permitted.

The following is a list of regulations from the TSA on some everyday items passengers may and may not bring with them to the airport. (For details, visit the
TSA site. )
