US carry-on restrictions eased a little

Some more good news for global travellers this week - this time for those travelling to, through or from the US. TSA has announced 2 changes to the liquid ban:

  1. Liquids bought airside (after security) may be brought onboard. (Canada already made this change).
  2. Small liquid toiletries are now allowed. Bring them in a clear plastic zip-top bag for separate screening.

While it is still more restrictive than pre-August, it is a step in the right direction. Here's hoping other countries with liquid bans also relax the rules quickly.
