I am going to fly from Italy (Venice) to the UK (London Heathrow) and back. Just today I started to think about the fact that the restrictions on liquids and "dangerous" materials might impact items that are quite common if taken literally.
I will carry a hand luggage, no checked luggage.
In particular, I was planning to bring my pencil case and I know a question has already been asked about ball pens (which technically do contain liquid):
However, I would like to know about the following items:
Liquid paper / correction fluid (pen shaped) / Tipp Ex / Paper Mate / I do not really know the name in English... It has a label stating its volume (7ml), moreover it shows a warning sign as the liquid is considered flammable.
I know the regulations ban "paint" because it's flammable.
Highlighter: technically, this also contains liquid. It doesn't show a label with the volume.
Are these items allowed? Do they count as liquid containers and shall they be put in the transparent plastic bag and accounted for when verifying the volume limit?
