    People and liquids in hand luggage

    People and liquids in hand luggage 29th Aug 17 at 12:09 PM
    The liquid restrictions of bottles, tubes, aerosols etc 100ml or below and in a clear resealable bag have been in place since 2006.

    So why do people think they can still take 1.5 litre bottle of water, 400ml bottle of shampoo, 200ml pot of hair gel through security?

    My friend flew out last week and the guy in front of her had the above plus many more and he argued the toss with the security guy. No exceptions.

    Then there are people that don't bother putting their liquids in a clear resealable bag. As there was a queue for the 'bubble gum type machine that dispenses a bag in a clear ball

    Why do people think they can take large bottles etc through into security and why do some not bother to put toiletries etc into a clear bag?

    These people cause unneeded delays to the security as it is.

    You always 'choose to'

    Airport Security have no legal right to search you or to confiscate goods.

    Why did you even talk this know-it-all crap "Airport Security have no legal right to search you or to confiscate goods" without acknowledging they have the perfect right to stop you going Airside.

    You are the classic example of a know-it-all getting all the important stuff completely wrong!!

    I did make the same point to the post you quoted (allbeit possibly more politely:
    So are you saying that if Security at MAN say you have a container that may be over 100ml you can 'choose not to' bin it?
    I think I know who will win that stand-off.

    'Choosing' not to put a liquid or gel in the bin will 100% mean you are not going to be on that flight.

    Security

    The Department for Transport is responsible for the security of UK airports. Their policies are implemented at each airport by the airport security staff. Airlines and travel companies do not set these rules.
    Before flying, you will go through airport security. These measures are in place to help maintain your safety, so familiarise yourself with the rules: this will help you pass through the security checks as quickly as possible. Restrictions on what you can take on board vary from time to time, so we recommend you read the latest security advice before every flight from the UK. We have produced additional detailed guidance on certain items that can cause issues at airport security.
    Please remember that although all airports must adhere to relevant aviation security requirements, security procedures may vary from airport to airport. More information can be found on the website of the airport you are flying from, and usually from that of your airline or travel company.

    Aviation security staff have no powers of search. However, submitting to search when requested is a condition of entry to the secure area of the airport. A refusal to submit to search will mean that you will not be allowed to fly.

    Not much of a choice, is it?

    Flew back from Slovakia once and a group in front from Slovakia appeared bemused when a kitchen knife on a cardboard backing was pulled and told it wasn't allowed to be in their hand luggage, I just looked at the security like what the hell?!
