dickytim: Or they refuse you service for not following the terms and conditions, you need to get over yourself.

Or are you going to pay $10,000 to fly from Auckland to Wellington so they can pay someone to run scientific tests on a liquid you want to carry on a plane?

Reality check please.


Are there and actual facts on how much of this stuff taken away is actually dangerous?




probably not because they more than liklely dont test any of it. easier to make a rule and confiscate it if people offend than to take a chance



So the rules have been made with no basis on fact or figures, no checking afterwards to see if the rules were actually justified.


I could understand it if they said "hey today we got 100ml of liquid explosive, we stopped a plane from been blown, see our rules do work!"

blakamin: What annoys me is the no aerosol deodorant in carry-on. I'm flying MEL>WLG for 14 hours then WLG>MEL, but I can't take my usual.
I'm sure they'd be unimpressed if I deodorise with duty free rum too.


You can take deodorant cans (or other aerosols), but they have to be travel size.
