    Best answer: There is no problem taking only a carry-on bag. A lot of popele do that to save money and hassle. No big deal.

    You are correct that powdered items are now facing more scrutiny at security, but that is primarily regarding incoming international flights. You likely will not have any problems at all, especially if your items are all 12 oz or less.

    And FWIW, I take my own food on the plane all the time and I have never been questioned about any of it.


    From the TSA website: "Starting June 30, 2018, if you are traveling from an international last-point-of-departure to the U.S., powder-based substances in carry-on baggage greater than 350mL or 12 oz. may require additional screening at the central checkpoint. Powder-like substances over 12 oz. or 350mL in carry-on that cannot be resolved at the central checkpoint will not be allowed onto the cabin of the aircraft and will be disposed of.

    For your convenience, place powders in your checked bag.

    The measures have already been implemented at U.S. airports nationwide to identify and prevent potentially dangerous items from being brought aboard the aircraft. There are no changes to what is allowed in carry-on baggage at U.S. airport checkpoints."

  • Have you ever been on a Aircraft flight when the aeroplane suddenly "Plummeted" to a lower altitude level?

    Best answer: Yes. Coming into Houston Hobbie on a Lockheed Jetstar (4 engine 12 passenger business jet, the exact same airplane used by P. Galore in "Goldfinger") I was in companionway behind cockpit. Late afternoon, we were at about 5K on approach at 5 miles and 200 knots. Curly Corbes, pilot, was talking to... show more
    Best answer: Yes. Coming into Houston Hobbie on a Lockheed Jetstar (4 engine 12 passenger business jet, the exact same airplane used by P. Galore in "Goldfinger") I was in companionway behind cockpit. Late afternoon, we were at about 5K on approach at 5 miles and 200 knots. Curly Corbes, pilot, was talking to approach control or tower (back in 1969, not sure which way it was done). He was asked if he could see the airport. He got mad and said we were getting headings instructions all over the sky, they should know if we could see the airport. Suddenly the copilot leaned over to peer almost straight down and ahead a bit. "There it is, just to the right." Curly said he was not going around on missed approach. We dived at about 45* and swooped in at 230 knots with speed brake open. We went way down the runway braking hard.
    I thought it was all neat until Curly's son, who was right beside me, said "Wow, that landing was a swinger!" And he was a USAF fighter pilot at the time.

  • My flight got moved to the next morning after I waited in the airport for 7 hours. Do I have a chance at a successful complaint?

    It was pouring outside, and the flight got delayed heavily. When it finally got there 5 hours later, the pilots said they were done for the day, and they moved the flight to early the next day. Of course, I chose to get the full refund and bail on the flight. Should I complain? (The airline is United)

    Tomorrow I am taking my little sister to Dublin, Ireland for the day. We are flying from London, Luton at 6:30am and that means I will have to leave my house at 2am so I can collect my sister and arrive at the airport in good time. Our flight back isn’t until 21:50 so it’ll be a long, long day. We have a friend who’s got a hotel so worst comes to worst we could always nap at his. What time should I go to sleep to ensure I feel rested? I can’t sleep on planes and it’s just over an hour and I’d feel moody. I could nap this afternoon but then I’m not sure if Ill be tired again come 6am. Any ideas?

    Hello, hope someone with relevant knowledge or experience pertaining to my question is able to answer as soon as possible. Thank you. Leaving Thursday 08 November 2018, was supposed to be a nice holiday with my mum however spontaneous work commitments means she is unable to come along. We don't want to waste the money and tickets so I suggested I go alone. In Japan, we would've been staying with my cousin, which is the same case if I'm able to travel by myself. I'm responsible and know I can fly and travel by myself, but my question is more about entering and leaving Japan. Is there any special documents I need to have? I have connecting flights from my hometown to Brisbane, to Singapore then on to Haneda. Leaving from Narita on the way home but pretty much the same route reversed. Do I need a notarised parental consent letter at all? Any unaccompanied minor documents or such? Where can I find official documents? I read that my cousin would have to meet me at the airport too? Hoping for some solid advice. Thanks for your answers if they're helpful. Have a nice day/night!
