3-1-1 … or stupid FAA tricks

December 20, 2008 at 8:23 pm 1 comment

I have been back and forth from Omaha to Chicago for the past three weeks.  There is a silly little rule that if you want to carry on anything in the way of gels, lipstick, hairspray, toothpaste, etc. it must be less than 3 oz. and fit into a ziploc baggy.  It is the most ridiculous nonsensical requirement.  And to top it off, I have forgotten, on a few different occasions, to pull the baggy out of my carryon bag and have it x-rayed.  Complete oversight and once realized, felt incredibly scared for having forgotten. But, I was not “found” out.   So, what is the point of making millions of travelers go through this charade if they aren’t even going to enforce it?

    I HATE this rule. It is the most stupid, idiotic thing that they could have come up with. And the airlines took advantage of our need to check bags through (if we need more than 3 oz of anything), and they started charging for bag check in – what a scam.
