Travel security rules in flux

In the aftermath of the incident on the Amsterdam to Detroit flight, travel security rules are again in a state of flux. For now, changes appear to mainly affect flights to/from USA. However, additional security delays are affecting passengers on all flights at major international hubs.

Since the new rules are not yet finalised, airline websites have scanty or possibly out of date information. Some of the rules are only being advised once onboard. As a general rule, allow more time at airports for check in and for security and be prepared to deal with changes. For example those in the middle of a trip with 2 carry ons may find they can only take one bag onboard.

As the situation unfolds I can only hope that we now don't have a war on solids to match the war on liquids.

Holidaying away from home can be for several reasons. Relaxing and rejuvenating ourselves is the most likely thing that we do in a vacation. such a traveling should be safe and convenient.
