Things You Should Never Bring on a Plane
When you’re packing for your empty leg flights, make sure to leave these items at home. They will not be allowed on the plane, and you will have to either check them or leave them behind. Each airport has its own set of rules, so be sure to check with your specific airport before you pack.
Sharp objects: Items such as scissors, knives, and razors are not allowed on planes and should be checked or left at home. If you do need to bring a sharp object with you, make sure it is in your checked baggage.
Firearms: Firearms of any kind are not allowed on flights, so you will have to check them or leave them behind. If you are bringing a firearm, make sure it is unloaded and packed in accordance with the TSA’s regulations.
Flammable liquids: Anything that is flammable or combustible can not be taken on board a plane, including items like paint thinner and certain types of aerosol cans. All of these items must be checked or left behind.
Explosives: Anything that is explosive, such as fireworks, ammunition, and matches, are not allowed on planes and must be left at home.
Household items: Items like bleach, lighters, nail polish remover, and other household cleaners can not be taken on board a plane. Check with your airline to find out what their specific rules are for these types of items.
Laptops: Some airlines may allow you to carry your laptop onto the plane, but it is usually best to check with your airline first before packing one in your carry-on bag. If they do not allow laptops onboard, you will have to leave them behind or check them with the rest of your luggage.
Pets: Most airlines do not allow pets onboard, so you will have to check them with the rest of your luggage. Make sure you check with your specific airline before traveling, as some may allow small pet carriers onboard.
Alcohol: Generally, you are only allowed to bring one bottle of wine or beer per passenger on board a plane, and it must be unopened. Any other kind of alcohol must be checked in your baggage or left at home.
Potentially hazardous materials: Anything that is potentially hazardous such as bleach drain cleaner, and lithium batteries, can not be taken on planes and should be left at home or checked in with the rest of your luggage.
