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 ...

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.

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 ...

TSA Doesn't List Drones The closest things to drones I could find in TSA's database of packable items are radio controlled helicopters which apparently can be taken on a plane both as check-in as well as carry-on luggage. TSA even gives packing advice. Quoting from the linked site: Search Results For: RC helicopter Check or Carry-on You may ...

A while ago (early July) I flew with Wizz Air, and they are quite strict about luggage size. Most of us had to put our bag in a box that has exactly the size you mentioned, and if anything sticks out, or it doesn't fit in, you'll have to pay extra. Thus, it is not volume restricted, but dimension restricted. Three of us had 'regular' cabin-size luggage ...

Clothes are far lighter (and no-one weighs your take on even if there is a limit). Put your books in your take-on. A Kindle at 180g (6 oz) is far lighter than 15 books though and perhaps more convenient.

Books are heavier, period. Your typical cheap-ass perfect-bound B&W 300-page airport paperback detective/romance novel weighs around 441 grams. A nice hardback or a big chunky guidebook will be more: Lonely Planet India is over 1 kg, and a 500-page ream of A4 printing paper is well over 2 kg! A T-shirt occupies roughly the same volume as that ...

I often buy multiple books on trips and carry them home. For the outward bound trip, the suitcase is 10-15 lbs (4.5–7 kg) or more below the maximum weight limit. That way I know I have some room for souvenirs and books. I've also taken older clothes that I'm willing to toss out at the end of a trip. If I think there's a chance that a bag is overweight, I ...

If you plan on reading on the flight then keeping them with you is probably ideal. I guess it also might depend on which is more replaceable - the clothes or the books. Checked luggage sometimes gets mis-routed between flights and can be stolen while at the luggage carousel.
