Maybe not exactly what you asked for, but makes searching a little easier: on Fareboom when you go into details of a specific result, you can click and have it show something like: Free Baggage: 20 kg Doesn't allow to enter your luggage mass in the search form, but at least you don't have to visit each carrier website to find out.

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 ...

MOST countries severely restrict the importation of food from abroad. Spain AFAIK is no different. So unless you want to eat the stuff on board during the flight, you're liable to get in trouble with UK customs on arrival and have to watch your stuff getting confiscated, probably also facing a fine.

It sounds like you are booking two separate flights - one to JFK; and then another separate trip outbound from LGA. These are unrelated; which means that your luggage won't be checked through, and you'll have to check in at LGA to receive your boarding pass for the second flight. So to answer your question regarding the delay - it is solely your ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

You wouldn't even make it onto the plane. The airline won't let you check in without a valid ESTA or visa, and you won't get an ESTA or visa with your 10 year bar (assuming you are honest with the questions, which you should be unless you want to be in an even bigger world of hurt)

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 ...

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.


9

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.

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 ...

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 ...

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.

A flight blanket worn as a scarf (folded in half and tucked through the loop) with the loop in front can often help. It will also keep your neck warm.

The simple answer is they don't. The video plays the instructions including audio of the instructions .. here's the most famous one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0N3J6fE-0JI 1 but the human staff have to actually stand up to point to the exits and also demonstrate how to use the life jackets, oxygen and so on.

Of course, you must put your chair in an upright position during meal service. It's a "rule" on every airline I've been on. I find this QA surprising; I would have assumed everyone would just answer "of course, you're always told to put your seat backs 'up' for meals." (Just as for landing, etc.) If you're getting your meal, and the clown in front of you ...

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 ...

From my experience on a transatlantic flight: First they knock: knock, knock, we are landing sir. Me: OK. Few minutes later: they knock more: knock, knock, knock, we are landing sir, you need to return to your seat. Me: I need 5 minutes. Few minutes later: they bang on the door: bang, bang, bang, SIR, YOU NEED TO RETURN TO YOUR SEAT IMMEDIATELY!!!!!!!. ...

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 ...

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.


21

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.

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 ...

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.

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 ...

I have flown for years using my 4 plus years expired ID and my passports. I do however have a current one which I usually leave at home.

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.


15

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 ...

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

They will get wet, twice. Luggage are almost always transported in small chains of relatively flat carts pulled by a motor vehicle. Then, a conveyor belt loads them into the plane as works move each piece from the carts to the belt. As some comments say, the carts sometimes are covered, which I have seen but it was not complete coverage, so water will still ...

Absolutely. Just on Monday there I arrived at London Gatwick in heavy rain. Took them 50 mins to offload plane and load bag onto carousel (strangely mine was the first on the carousel). Bag was soaked through, top compartment (containing best suit I was due to wear to job interview), was soaked through (was in suit carrier, inside bag zipped compartment). ...

The average European airport security is only marginally more patient than the TSA. That is to say, they are mini-dictators in their little realm. On top of that, they're paranoid, overworked and hated by all. It's not a productive mix. If they see this —and they will— they will inspect it. Some might buy that it's caffeine. Some wont. Nobody can tell you ...

There are no such restrictions on flights. However, for your own safety; you should be careful and apply your normal common-sense checks, just like you would in any other transaction. There are no specific protections provided to you, just because you are on a flight. You would still be liable for the sale (for example, if the item is subject to customs ...

I've carried on a container of white powder in the US and China, nobody has taken note of it. I've also carried multiple pounds of white powder still sealed in properly labeled manufactures packaging. That being said, I wouldn't bring a bag of powder, period. Put it in something more substantial!

I would avoid bringing samples of pure caffeine on aircraft because caffeine is somewhat toxic (1-10 g) and therefore is probably prohibited by flight regulations. Source: http://well.blogs.nytimes.com/2015/05/18/caffeine-powder-poses-deadly-risks-2/

Most airlines have a bit about this on their site - for example, on RyanAir, for travel in the UK: Adults: Any photo ID which matches the passenger name in the booking. Infants and Children: Children under 16 years of age (travelling with an adult) on UK domestic flights can travel without photo identification. So no, they don't need ID to ...


27

I'd call the airline directly to ensure that you're interpreting their terms correctly and whether they require any additional information or preparation. And be prepared for a very, very thorough customs inspection. The value of your luggage will obviously be above the monetary limit for customes-free imports, and the amount will suggest commercial ...

Airlines will bump up a departure time if they feel they can get the plane out earlier. It helps their on-time performance stats and gets everyone to their destination a little earlier. But this is done only when they are certain everyone will be onboard earlier. The decision would likely be based on 1) all originating passengers have checked in XX ...

Hard to tell. I do take a bunch of prescription drugs that I have consolidated into a single small zip lock bag for travel and that really looked fairly suspicious. No problems whatsoever in a 100+ domestic+international flights. Then again, your bag looks even more suspicious and a lot depends on how you may show up against expectations and profiles. This ...

That bag would show orange color on an x-ray machine which is the color for organic material (on most machines) and it would be very obvious even between layers of clothing which are also organic but would show a different shade(powder bag would be a very dark shade of orange). If I looked at your bag for a fraction of a second I would most likely pull it ...

It's possible that it might cause some concern given that it's unlabelled and white (that dodgy anthrax scare a few years back has done so much damage to air travel...sigh). However, most airports in Europe you just stroll through and don't have to get checked, quite often. If asked to declare, I'd be up front about it and mention it, rather than have them ...

According to the airport's website, the only scheduled services are: Citywing operating flights between Blackpool, the Isle of Man and Belfast

I am afraid this is normal, particularly if A, B and C are all in different countries. Essentially by doing a multiple destination trip (called a "circle trip") you are seen as someone more able to pay lots of money than someone doing a simple round trip; ergo, the price is higher. If the airline has ruled that the very cheapest fares cannot be combined on ...

Chile on the list of Annex II countries which means you can visit the Schengen zone countries for up to 90 days without applying for a visa. This also means that you can freely transit the Schengen area on any number of flights or connections. You can show your EEA Family Permit at the border but it's not required that you do so.
