Given that some airlines even give you a complimentary pyjama when flying in first class I'd say that it would be perfectly legal for you to wear one on the plane regardless of which class you're flying in. Worst case scenario you'll get some looks from other passengers. Go ahead and fly comfortable.

Nutella is pretty similar to toothpaste in terms of viscosity. Since toothpaste counts as a liquid (source: http://ec.europa.eu/transport/modes/air/security/aviation-security-policy/lags_en.htm), it is reasonably safe to assume that Nutella does so as well. Also, this page lists "pastes, jams and jellies" as liquids. The latter page is for British Airways ...

Yes, you can wear your pajamas during a flight. You might get some strange looks, but there is nothing wrong with wearing them. Other options would be a 'sweat suit' with elastic at the waist and a t-shirt and hoodie for the top.

That would be at the discretion of the security screeners. They have methods of verifying your identity even if you have no ID at all (some people forget their wallet). If you have a passport, bring that. Otherwise I would expect an expired license will not prevent you from being boarded. As a matter of law, an expired license only affects your right to ...

Unless you're concerned about your appearance prior to boarding the flight for some reason, I see no reason not to take @cgcampbell's advice. I have to wear a metallic brace for an arthritic knee, so I either wear comfortable shorts, or a pair of (equally comfortable) zip-off pants so I can easily show the brace to security agents (TSA here in the US). I ...

The British Airways page on liquids, banned and restricted items has a link to a PDF document detailing the items which cannot be carried as cabin luggage. This document mentions toy guns as being forbidden in carry-on luggage (emhpasis mine): PASSENGERS AND CABIN BAGGAGE Without prejudice to applicable safety rules, passengers are not permitted ...

For the EU, the controlling technical reference for your question is found in EC Regulation 206/2009 and the other related regulations such as EC Regulation 136/2004. I assume that 'Indian Chips' are a recipe containing potatoes (kale, bananas, and other foodstuffs qualifying as 'chips') which have been fried in oil (e.g., sunflower oil) and other spices ...

No. Plain and simple. Nutella is basically a gel and honestly I tried once to ask 2 different airports by sending them an email, whether similar things were allowed. They said they are not. Anyway, Nutella doesn't cost a lot and you could try to "sacrifice" a glass of it, but I wouldn't do the same with others gastronomic specialities.

As of 2015 a regular NY driver's license is not compliant with the REAL ID Act. A NY EDL is compliant. The DHS's REAL ID Enforcement in Brief says that the REAL ID Act will be enforced for boarding aircraft "no sooner than 2016", pending a review: Phase 4: Boarding federally regulated commercial aircraft. A driver’s license or identification card from a ...

Within the EU, you can bring the water gun, but not the nerf gun in your cabin luggage. The relevant EU regulation ban 'devices that discharge projectiles', which should cover the nerf gun. The water gun is ok as long as it is obviously a toy gun and is not 'appearing capable, of being used to cause serious injury by discharging a projectile'. Categories ...

as someone who only wears sweatpants/sweatshirts on planes, nobody will question it. I show up in them, but changing in the bathroom shouldn't cause an issue as long as you can stuff your other clothes into your carry-on. Just make sure, as @Joe Blow said, your pajamas don't let anything illegal out.

Your best bet would be to try chartering a private seaplane in Bali and see if they will take you. There are no scheduled flights - you need to fly to Labuan Bajo and take a boat from there if you're not interested in private rental.

I fly about 100,000 miles a year, mostly long haul. I wear them all the time, in economy and business class. It's fine and your fellow passengers won't think twice about it. Just make sure you're wearing undergarments of some kind so people can't see the outline of your genitals. If you're really concerned about it, buy some nicer ones that toe the line ...

Note you can NOT wear pyjamas with an open fly, on the plane. If there is any accidental exposure of your genitals, you'll either be promptly arrested, dealt with in some way by the staff, or some kid's father will beat you. Yes, it's true that in 1st class / etc, airlines hand out pyjama-like clothes for you to change in to during longer flights. The ...

I have been travelling internationally a lot. I have travelled in shorts all the way to a three piece suite, and never had any issue. My preferred option is always: Find a CLEAN restroom and change into comfortable clothes before boarding. Alternatively you can change right after boarding. If you wait too long, the restroom floor starts getting dirty, and ...

Regarding this great question, there are two critical points here: (Point 1) Nutella is incredibly different, depending the production center. Much as with, say, Lindt chocolate, if you are an aficionado, when you pick up a jar of Nutella, the very first thing you do is put on your reading glasses and examine the extremely fine print on the rear label, so ...

As stated in previous answers, Nutella will not be allowed in the cabin. However, you might find Nutella at the airport's duty-free shops (after you check-in and enter the boarding area). If bought there, then you can bring it in the cabin.

I assume you are going to Dubai (and not transiting to another destination). There is a coffee shop near the entrance to the metro station, inside Terminal 3. There is plenty of seating in this area and there is free wifi. It would be a good place to meet. You can take the metro from Terminal 1 to Terminal 3.

Last month we boarded the plane at YYZ, and while they were loading the last bags, the ramp was closed because of a thunderstorm. One bag stood in the conveyor belt under one full hour of torrential rain.

After a long search I've found a really simple answer: Rinca island is in a natural park area and it is a no flight zone.

You are more than okay with the transit time because: Jeddah is the main hub for Saudia; so there are plenty of connecting flights (in case you miss your connection). You don't have to go through customs and immigration; there is no airside transit visas or such formalities in Saudi Arabia. The terminal is huge, but easily navigable. You may have to resort ...

If you bought it as one ticket, then it will be sufficient, but it looks a bit tight. (Although I expect it's a common connection.) The airline will re-accommodate you if you miss the connection. The minimum connect time in this circumstance is 1 hour 30 minutes. Int-Int on SV at JED: STANDARD.D/D...D/I...I/D...I/I. ONLINE 1.15 2.30 2.30 1.30 OFFLINE ...

Nowdays, when you ask for a fragile sticker, they make you sign a waiver for baggage damage (Limited release) , so its purely for the airlines benefit, they know they dont need to compensate you if they damage something in your baggage if you mark it as fragile
