Saw that below on FT, it may be of interest to those intending to travel to "TSA land".
JDiver(FT) said:WARNING! confirmed: new TSA policy on handcarried "large electronics" Aug 4
I received a notice from Joe Brancatelli, and it is posted on SEA website, that without any announcement TSA have changed their policy on handcarried "large electronics."
The temporary notice has been verified, albeit not by TSA in D.C. as they are closed. The Air Transport Association has alerted its members. "Effective at 12:01 a.m., Saturday, August 4, the TSA will require travelers to remove the following items from their carry-on bags and submit them for separate screening: video games, video cameras, DVD players and CD players. They will now be treated like laptop computers. You'll have to remove them from your carry-on and run them separately through the X-ray machines," says Brancatelli.
See Sea-Tac Airport: Sea-Tac Airport to see what SEA says - and think how you can avoid hassles this weekend, by not carrying "large electronics" in your carry-on, being prepared and being aware many summer travelers will probably cause queue backups with this sudden new rule.
