tip: if you must fly -- which I wish everyone would stop doing except for emergencies -- then bring celery and carrots. they haven't banned vegetables on planes yet.
The difference between theory and practise in practise ...
Any idiot can face a crisis - it's day to day living that wears you out.
I have always thought it was a move by the airlines and soda vendors to sell more drinks on planes, by preventing people from bringing a bottle of juice or water with them.
You can bring as much water as you like on a plane, as long as you buy it in the secure area after the security check. (And it doesn't take up your neighbour's seat in the air.)
So yes - very possibly. But I'd wonder if there was a trade-off between extra soda sales and lower flight numbers. Some people still aren't happy about the ban, and it's a huge inconvenience for anyone travelling with a baby.
they haven't banned vegetables on planes yet.
Especially not on Air Force One.
(Or in the Oval Office.)
Not in Hong Kong 2 weeks ago. I had water confiscated going into the (so-called) secure area. I bought more. This was then confiscated in the jetway, near the door of the aircraft.
Next up: stomach pumps.
