Especially when you consider Heathrow's reputation for missing itemsNM said:In fact, it is against our corporate travel policy to let it out of your sight and we are not permitted to check it in. So I guess that means that if its not allowed in the cabin then it stays at home - now that is going to make for some interesting changes to travel plans or policy.
No. The restrictions are being enforced on all airlines.SF& said:Does it put you guys of AA?
Targetted by whom? No airline is any safer than any other, with the possible exception of LY.SF& said:I am not going to fly AA as I think they are the main targeted airline - you don't see them targeting gulf air or emirates!!
How do you know they weren't targetting other airlines as well?SF& said:Tagretted by whom the alleged terroists ? Remember the ones trying to blow up six AMERICAN aircraft.... as stated the terrosits targeted UA AA and Continental Air...
so i figure it's safer on others than american ...
I am not sure I see your logic? How many routes have a choice between AA and GF or EK? Certainly none that I have ever flown.SF& said:I am not going to fly AA as I think they are the main targeted airline - you don't see them targeting gulf air or emirates!!
What is going to make a bigger impact in the "free world", a fully loaded 747 blowing up somewhere between London & New York, or a Saab 340 flying being blown up flying from Dubbo to Sydney?Robert Barlow said:Try flying out of a regional airport like Albury. What security? There is none at present and the Feds will make a token gesture in the future. At least at some regionals like BNK and CFS, passengers and carry on baggage are security screened.
You are quite right but this latest incident will change the way people travel in the skies.NM said:So I guess that means that if its not allowed in the cabin then it stays at home - now that is going to make for some interesting changes to travel plans or policy.
You won't be alone - and as I mentioned earlier, Cruise lines will be rubbing their hands together in glee if the insane carry-on restrictions continue to apply.Commuter said:Just thinking that this will benefit the likes of NetJet a lot... (business jets/fractional ownership etc).
If I could afford it, I'd definitely fly on business/private jets.
Dear Simon, the comments re the Brasilian may be in poor taste, but the UK authorities clearly don't have a good track record with these sorts of things (and what about the cover ups?).simongr said:Just a few comments after actually reading some of the news coverage both on line and the in the press in the UK. Re the liquids - the fear is that a number of people on the plan could each a small part of the bomb on board and then assemble the bomb on the plane. So there is no actual assembled bomb in the luggage compartment just parts in various bags etc.
I think the comment re the brazilian is in very poor taste.
I am not looking forward to my flights out of Heathrow next tuesday at this rate....
