Air Traffic Today Informative - What to expect
I've posted this as informative although it's a request. I'll be traveling by air in a couple of weeks and would appreciate any feedback from those of you who fly in the meantime.
The game plan and rules changed yesterday the 10th. Those folks flying that day were caught totally unaware and unprepared. I fully understand that. Those flying today were a little better prepared. I'm trying to prepare for two weeks from now.
I don't fly frequently, 2 or 3 times a year, and had prided myself on getting it down to a fine art to avoid any unnessesary inconvenience. I had the checked baggage with the clothing and the carry on consisted of those items I felt essential plus those things breakable, spillable ...that sort of thing, plus a change of clothing and the few things I thought of at the last minute. Most of those items on the carry on I think are now not allowed.
I was one of those who flew about a week after the airlines got back into a sort of semi mode after 9-11. Should someone have asked me then, I would have told them what to expect so they would somewhat know how to be better prepared.
Please.. if you've got complaints or want to criticize the present state of air travel, post it elsewhere. I simply would like to know what to expect and what items I might not have thought of should I decide to have a carry on, in addition, any items initially banned but now allowed.
