You may ask for a gate pass from the check in desk, which will enable you to go airside. However, it is really supposed to be for escorting people to the aircraft, not collecting them from the aircraft. Therefore, I would call the airline to discuss it now. Option 2 is to buy a fully refundable ticket for the day in question. Once you have got airside and ...

I doubt you'll find any definitive rulings for this, so all we can do is apply common sense -- although, as is well known, airport security often does not! So: the 3-1-1 liquids rule applies to containers. Since any liquid within a wet swimsuit or damp towels/laundry is not "contained", it's unlikely to be subject to the rules. (Assuming you don't have a ...

Here are Airport guidelines that I found in the internet regarding what to bring and what not to bring when checking-in. Customs and Airport Guidelines NEW RULES FOR TAKING LIQUIDS, AEROSOLS AND GELS THROUGH SECURITY ONTO INTERNATIONAL AND DOMESTIC FLIGHTS Are your liquids, aerosols and gels 100ml or less? Liquids, aerosols and gels include items such as ...

There is not an "exemption" you can apply for, all you can do is take your power cord with the laptop and tell them that you only use the computer when plugged in. TSA officers have the right to ask you to turn on an electronic device to prove it is a functional device. But not every device is checked, nor every flight, it is at the discretion of the TSA ...

She can dress like stewardess, may look similar with her dressing. there will some things which will differentiate her from the real steward and the crew wont have any concern. the real steward got pin etc.... (look unique).

I just returned from a short trip to Istanbul, and thought I'd let readers know that this airport can have very long queues at arrivals and departures. Upon arriving, we obtained the "sticker visa" (45 euro for a sticker- only cash) which took less than 5 minutes, following which we joined the huge queue in front of Immigration, which took over 50 minutes. ...

The last time I went to IST there was no xray customs inspection on the way out of the airport (if there was one I was not selected to go through it), but there is one on the way in at the airport entrance before the check in desk and a second xray scan at the real security check point. Information from July 2014

Yes, Istanbul too have the same kind of system, For your kind information Istanbul have reestablished the new security system, I would like to mention here one news article posted in 2007 regarding Istanbul security system, in TODAYS ZAMAN, They have installed explosives detection system (EDS), the EDS provided luggage security in stages. The system has both ...

I am not sure about the permitted degree of the liquid. but if the cooled material used(even its quantity may be less but the chemical used to give cooling air, is got noted during the scan) in the Fury X is got more possibility of being checked by the security and even you are ready to pay the 8% VAT.it can happen if they allowed you keep, else you need to ...

You're proposing to bring this device through a security checkpoint: The more interesting question is, will they even realize that it contains liquid? Seems doubtful to me, simply because it doesn't look anything like a water bottle. Chances are it'll go right through without comment. But based solely on the device's construction I would not want to ...

As I understand it, lithium batteries are not permitted to be carried aboard if there is any possibility of the contacts being shorted out in transit (this can lead to excessive current draw, heat, and possibly fire or even explosion). If the battery is inside your laptop, it is considered protected against accidental short. If a battery is carried outside ...

No, they don't. Security looks for weapons and bombs; if it's not either, they're not interested. Of course, there's always the off chance that you'll run into some particularly zealous and clued-in inspector with a fetish for lithium batteries, but realistically I wouldn't worry about it. Also, 90% of the regulation you link to is about transporting ...

Considering that laptops and smartphones are allowed, both containing GPUs, I really doubt that taking a graphics card as carry-on would be an issue.

I have taken robots the size and shape of a soda can on a carry on that look far "scarier" than a graphics card (gpu is the chip), and no one batted an eye.

Also I would look into shipping them to your home in Switzerland... Extra Cost vs Fear of getting them confiscated. Especially if after shipping they are still cheaper than what you would pay in your home country.

Building on Calchas' comment, my coworkers and I have carried large, odd-looking electronic research equipment onto international flights on numerous occasions, on different airlines, departing from and passing through different airports. We have never had a problem. Usually, bags containing such equipment are given extra screening; security will pull us ...

keeping them sealed in the original packaging might help too, with receipt and original packaging it is easy to explain what it does if the question arises.

There's no mention of electronic boards etc in the TSA prohibited items list. So provided they aren't so heavy as to be a potential "blunt instrument" weapon, you should be ok. If they're in original packaging, that might help. Of course, they don't have to let any items through, restricted list or not. You may also wish to check the website of your ...

It is ok to dress "like" a stewardess on a flight. That is to say, it is okay to wear a dress or clothing similar to what stewardesses would wear. Now stewardesses also were pins, badges, etc. for identification. These are the items that separate the "real thing" from "counterfeits." Don't wear these accouterments to actually identify yourself as something ...

It really depends how well the uniform matches. I have inadvertently looked nearly identical to one of the male cabin attendants, right down to the glasses and (lack of) hair. Passengers were asking me all kinds of questions, and in most cases I knew the answers, so... The real attendant thought it was hilarious. However, in normal lighting no one would ...
