Crazy people do crazy things...

Da mein Flug vom idyllischen Flughafen Heathrow in London immer naeher rueckt, habe ich mir mal aus gegebenem Anlass die Reisebestimmungen durchgelesen.

Man mag zwar schon davon gehoert haben, wenn man sie sich jedoch in Ruhe durchliest kommt man sich echt verarscht vor. Hier ein Auszug:

With immediate effect, the following arrangements apply to all passengers starting their journey from airports in the UK or the United States of America (excluding flights from Atlanta, Dallas, Orlando and Tampa to London Gatwick) and to those transferring between flights at a UK airport.

All cabin baggage must be processed as hold baggage and carried in the hold of passenger aircraft departing UK airports.

Passengers are advised that ALL electrical or battery powered items including laptops, mobile phones, portable music players, remote controls etc cannot be carried in the cabin and must be checked in as hold baggage.

Passengers may take through the airport security search point, in a single (ideally transparent) plastic carrier bag, only the following items. Nothing may be carried in pockets:-

  • pocket size wallets and pocket size purses plus contents (for example money, credit cards, identity cards etc (not handbags));
  • travel documents essential for the journey (for example passports and travel tickets);
  • prescription medicines and medical items sufficient and essential for the flight (eg diabetic kit), except in liquid form unless verified as authentic.
  • spectacles and sunglasses, without cases.
  • contact lens holders, without bottles of solution.
  • for those travelling with an infant: baby food, milk (the contents of each bottle must be tasted by the accompanying passenger) and sanitary items sufficient and essential for the flight (nappies, wipes, creams and nappy disposal bags).
  • female sanitary items sufficient and essential for the flight, if unboxed (eg tampons, pads, towels and wipes).
  • tissues (unboxed) and/or handkerchiefs
  • keys (but no electrical key fobs)

Every other item must be carried in customer’s hold luggage.

All passengers must be hand searched, and their footwear and all the items they are carrying must be x-ray screened.

Pushchairs and walking aids must be x-ray screened, and only airport-provided wheelchairs may pass through the screening point.

In addition to the above, all passengers boarding flights to the USA and all the items they are carrying, including those acquired after the central screening point, must be subjected to secondary search at the boarding gate. Any liquids discovered must be removed from the passenger.

Customers travelling to the UK from overseas airports may be subject to local airport restrictions and therefore customers should plan to travel with the very minimum of hand luggage.

Update: Unser Blog scheint schon sein Gewicht in der Welt zu haben. Seit gestern darf man wieder ein Stueck Handgepaeck bei sich tragen. Lediglich die Muttermilch muss ich weiterhin im Koffer aufbewahren.

bitte kleiden sie sich durchsichtig, bedecken sie aber eindeutige körperteile, sodass andere mitreisende davon nicht gestört werden !!!
