  • Latest airline restrictions

    This is going to cause alot of pain.
    1. Duty free on out bound is now out of business. No alcohol or perfume then what else is there.
    2. Business class without business Laptops or papers to read. They say you cannot even take a book to read.
    3. Travel insurance safety and security of valuable items once taken as hand help luggage are now committed to the hold. Airports will need to implement formal pick up procedures as valuables will now be in this luggage.
    4 International couriers that carry documents as hand held are now unemployed.

    I suppose prayer rugs are still exempt as we would not want to upset the religious minorities.

    These changes will lead to quantities of laptop batteries and alcohol also being confined to the hold.

        Are these rumours or fact? Are these US rules or AUS rules?

        There are ways around the Duty Free issue. My dad and I were just talking about that when my parents were here Monday and Tuesday. Not sure if the practice has been implemented or if it was just my dad's take on things.

        Gotta wait until tonight to do some digging on this though, I'm at work right now.

          OK, here are the regulations outlined by Transport Canada. As I thought, Duty Free has been reinstated, you just don't get possession of your purchase until after the flight is over, depending on the type of flight and the airport.

          http://www.victoriaairport.com/resou...OnAircraft.pdf

          Media advisory
          Changes Affecting Duty Free Goods on Aircraft
          As of 03:00 hours E.D.T. on Saturday, August 19, 2006 the sale of liquids, gels and aerosols at duty free stores at Canadian airports is being restored for
          passengers travelling on most international flights, with some restrictions.
          Travellers going to the United States (U.S.):

          • For all flights departing Canada and bound for the United States (U.S.)
          from airports providing U.S. pre-clearance services (Vancouver, Calgary,
          Edmonton, Winnipeg, Toronto, Ottawa and Montreal), the sale of liquids,
          gels or aerosols at duty free stores will continue to be permitted provided
          passengers transfer these items to their checked baggage before
          proceeding through the screening process.

          • For all other flights departing Canada and bound for the U.S., liquids, gels
          or aerosols may be available for purchase at duty free stores and
          onboard aircraft depending on the airline. Passengers will only receive
          their goods upon termination of the flight and should enquire at their duty
          free store or with their airline to determine if this service is available.

          Travellers going to the United Kingdom (U.K.):

          • For all flights departing Canada and bound for the U.K., liquids, gels or
          aerosols may be available for purchase at duty free stores and onboard
          aircraft depending on the airline. Passengers will only receive their goods
          upon termination of the flight and should enquire at their duty free store or
          with their airline to determine if this service is available.

          Other international travelers:

          • For other international flights, purchasing and delivery arrangements may
          differ by airport. For example, in terminals serving both domestic and
          international flights, delivery of the duty free goods will be made after the
          boarding gate when boarding the aircraft. For additional information on
          duty free sales, please contact your airport directly.

          Other than the provisions for duty free goods above, liquids, gels and aerosols* in containers of any size continue to be prohibited from being brought onboard aircraft by passengers on their person or in their carry-on baggage. Passengers should pack these items in their checked baggage. (*Please note that some aerosols are not permitted in checked baggage. For more information check the Canadian Air Transport Security Authority’s (CATSA) website at www.catsa.gc.ca).

          Liquids or gels include, but are not limited to beverages, puddings, perfume,
          deodorant, shampoo, suntan lotion, creams, hand sanitizer, toothpaste, hair gel, mascara, lip glosses and other items of similar consistency.
          For further information please visit Transport Canada’s website at www.tc.gc.ca or CATSA’s website at www.catsa.gc.ca.

            Why don't we just cryogenically freeze each passenger at the departure point, and ship them in cold storage to be thawed upon arrival.

            Save us all this mess, and you could stack em 6 high.
