Liquids Rule. You are allowed to bring a quart-sized bag of liquids, aerosols, gels, creams and pastes in your carry-on bag and through the checkpoint. These are limited to travel-sized containers that are 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters) or less per item.
Liquids and Gels. You may only carry on liquids and gels that are in 3.4-ounce containers or smaller. Liquids include toiletries such as shampoo, after-shave, hand or body lotion, mouthwash and liquid makeup. Toiletries often found in gel form include toothpaste, deodorant and lip balm or lipstick.
3-1-1 for carry-ons = 3.4 ounce (100ml) bottle or less (by volume) ; 1 quart-sized, clear, plastic, zip-top bag; 1 bag per passenger placed in screening bin. One-quart bag per person limits the total liquid volume each traveler can bring. 3.4 ounce (100ml) container size is a security measure. Be prepared.
Do not pack you portable charger (power pack) in hold luggage: Taking your portable phone charger (power pack) on a plane is fine, but just remember to pack it in your hand luggage. Do not put them in your hold luggage as this is not permitted and could result in your luggage not being loaded.
A. Makeup is subject to the same liquid and gel rules as all other substances — so if you're bringing liquid mascara, lip gels (such as Blistex) or other liquid- or gel-like items, they will need to be placed in your quart-size plastic bag in 3.4-ounce or smaller containers.
According to the TSA, solid snacks like dry cereal, crackers, cookies, sandwiches, and fruit are allowed in carry-on bags in unlimited quantities. So if you wanted to cut up a 12-foot sub sandwich and stuff the whole thing in your roller bag, the TSA has no problem with that—though the rest of the plane might.
Don't stuff your shoes into your bag on top of your clothes at the last minute. The TSA says to, “[p]ack shoes, boots, sneakers, and other footwear on top of other contents in your luggage.” Their advice is for checked, not carry on, luggage. If you're traveling carry-on-only, you can ignore their recommendation.
Turns out there's no real reason for all the liquid paranoia. According to the TSA, most makeup has been pretty much kosher since 2010: Powder makeup is fine. Common-size facial cosmetic and medicinal products in a tube, for example mascara, lip gloss, and lip balm, are not required to be placed in the one-quart bag.
Medication in liquid form is allowed in carry-on bags in excess of 3.4 ounces in reasonable quantities for the flight. It is not necessary to place medically required liquids in a zip-top bag. You can bring your medication in pill or solid form in unlimited amounts as long as it is screened.
Items that you can have in your hold baggage but not in your hand baggage include: Liquids, creams, gels and pastes in containers over 100ml. Sharp items including scissors. Razor blades (razors that have the blade set into a plastic moulding are allowed in hand baggage, but other types are not)
Consider your hair straighteners – or flat iron. These objects might look dangerous, what with a cord that dangles and hot extensions, but you can take these on a plane without difficulty. The same rules might not apply to everything in your carry-on bags.
Carry-on bag. The maximum dimensions for a carry-on bag are 9 inches x 14 inches x 22 inches (22 cm x 35 cm x 56 cm), including handles and wheels.
Stick deodorant is fine in any size. Well, almost any size… Powders and crystals are good to go as well. Spray, Gel, Liquid, Cream, Pastes, and Roll-On deodorants need to be in containers no larger than 3.4 ounces and placed in a clear quart-sized baggie.
How many bags can I carry on, and do you charge for checked luggage? Carryon items are limited to one (1) bag plus one (1) smaller, personal-type item. You're allowed two (2) checked pieces of baggage per ticket, with some size and weight limitations. We only charge for overweight and excess items.
To be on the safe side, stick to the rule: all liquids must be in containers of no more than 3.4 ounces or 100ml, and all containers must fit in a clear, one quart sized zip top plastic bag. You can still travel carry-on only with liquids.
Any electrical items need to have enough charge for you to turn them on. Lithium batteries must be carried in your hand luggage (this usually means your phone and your laptop). You can also take hairdryers or straighteners, electric shavers, travel irons and e-cigarettes in your carry-on luggage.
The only kind of curling and straightening irons you have to be concerned with are the types that take a butane cartridge. These are only allowed in your checked baggage, as long as you only have one and a safety cover must be over the heating element. This type of iron is not permitted in your carry-on luggage.
Travel Tips: 3-1-1 liquids rule. You are allowed to bring a quart-sized bag of liquids, aerosols, gels, creams and pastes through the checkpoint. These are limited to 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters) or less per item. This is also known as the 3-1-1 liquids rule.
Plan ahead by strategically packing these items in your carry-on luggage for happier travels.
- Collapsible Water Bottle with a Filtering System.
- Daily Medications.
- Phone Charger.
- Any Documents You'll Need Throughout the Trip.
- Any Valuables.
- A Change of Underwear.
- Toothbrush, Toothpaste, and Facial Wipes.
This includes cosmetics in liquid form such as eyeliner, nail polish, foundation and moisturizers. It also includes perfume. The rule states that any liquids must be in a resealable container that is 3.4 ounces or less and that all containers must fit in one clear, plastic, resealable 1-quart-sized bag.
Surprisingly, the TSA allows almost all food items through the security checkpoint, so long as none of them are liquids in amounts exceeding 3.4 ounces. This means you can even bring pies and cakes with you through the checkpoint—though they will be subject to additional screening.
