The water (in the shape of a bottle, pouch or waterskin) will very easily be seen. Consequences would depend on what the liquid was and how convinced they were that it was an innocent mistake. You could miss your flight, or worse.

Is it so easy to see? It is so easy to see, if they wish to. It is not so easy to see if they wish to see. It is exceedingly unwise to even think about doing what you ask about. The object of the exclusions is to eliminate items which have a reasonable prospect of being energetic enough to constitute a significant explosion hazard to the aircraft ...

According to Ryanair, you are welcome to do so. As for diseases etc., the regulations usually regard meat and dairy products, but if you are traveling within EU, you are ok. Outside, however, it depends on the country. In my experience, ham and cheese sandwiches have never been a problem on European flights, including those with Ryanair. As long as it is ...

The website of RyanAir states that food is okay to bring. I would suggest using a plastic bag or plastic container, instead of a metal container shaped as a bomb, but I guess that's pretty obvious. And there won't be any safety risks if you bring regular food like bread/sandwiches/etc. You can't bring drinks through the security check, however you can buy ...

A late-ish answer with some random thoughts after a 30+ hr transit with 2 3 year-old boys (LAX - Dubai - Johannesburg). Use potty breaks to take a walk around, although my boys didn't want to run around as much as I had feared. If the kids are asleep, try to sleep yourself and not "catch up" on movies/tv/books/etc. Quickly learn how to access the kids ...

I have flown (as a pilot as well as a passenger) with a variety of GPS units (hand-held Garmins, iPhones, iPads), in a variety of aircraft, from my own single engine plane up to the largest commercial, with the portable GPS unit providing excellent position, speed and altitude information. Indeed, my iPad correlates superbly with my Garmin GNS 530, and ...

In March 2015, I accidentally left it on my keychain while going through security in a U.S. Airport. The TSA agent noticed my keychain in the bin and asked about the Swiss tech key chain tool. After he examined it he declared it a blade and tossed it in the bin, never to been seen by me again. My advice, leave it home.

It has indeed changed one year ago. From https://www.ryanair.com/en/terms-and-conditions/regulations-reservedseating/: ALLOCATED SEATING - ALL FLIGHTS FROM 8 APRIL 2014 ONWARDS [...] Customers who do not wish to select and purchase their preferred allocated seat, can check-in online between 7 days and 2 hours before each booked flight and will ...

In a nutshell, everything is possible: dropping the car off in another German city, renting in Austria and dropping it off in Germany or vice versa. You will pay a premium for one-way rentals and then extra on top of that for cross-border one-way rentals. But you can do it with all the major international brands. Beyond that, German motorways are not quite ...

Start at the end, by arranging the flight out of Germany. Choose the city of departure that is the most convenient regarding prices and schedules. This way you will have fixed three parameters: the arrival in Bucharest and departure from Bucharest as well as the departure from Germany. Then, choose a flight between Bucharest and Germany. Choose again a ...

If you plan on leaving the airport then, as a US passport holder, you will need a Turkish Visa to enter the country. United States of America: Ordinary and official passport holders are required to have visa to enter Turkey. They can obtain three month-multiple entry visas from Turkish diplomatic representations abroad and also via the website ...

If this doesn't affect the price of your flight tickets, I would suggest to fly to one city, e.g. Berlin, drive to the other end of Germany, eg. Munich while stopping at Frankfurt or Nuremberg and then fly home. I see little sense in driving back to the arrival airport, unless this affects the price of the flight tickets or the rental car (one-way rentals ...

Edit: newer answers indicate that Ryanair have changed procedures. Please note that this info may be out of date Ryanair seating typically works in that at some point, people are invited to board, a queue forms (it may have already done so) and everyone piles on the plane, taking seats as they find them. If it is important to sit as a group, then your best ...

I have used sites like Kayak.com you can navigate around and see where you want to go. This will scan multiple travel sights and airlines at once so you can compare.

I would recommend you to use despegar to book tickets and hotels, you could probably find better deals there in compare to expedia.

To be quite honest I think you are barking up the wrong tree but you can try and use a suggestion from Airliners.net thread on maintenance records. It may be possible to receive at least some information on aircraft maintenance from Plane Fax but as was suggested these may have be a matter of public record. But if you feel like spending $99 for a report ...
