Tall Guy - ''All items must be under 100 milliliters or they cannot come into passenger areas or be carried on planes''

 

'passenger areas' 'CARRIED on planes' that refers to hand luggage.

 

Upon re-read, you may well be right....  though the article would have/should have said CARRY ON luggage if that's what they really meant!

 

And the article headline doesn't help:

Islamic terrorism was/is a response to what?

There is no chicken or the egg mystery here.

The consequences of Islamic terrorism are ultimately a self inflicted misery on the West.

and Islamic terrorist did not shoot down MH17 either

Islamic terrorism is a response to the call for Jihad over and over in the Quran, not self inflicted any more than 300 years of Islamic conquest in the middle east, Africa and Spain was 'self inflicted' I left Bkk on Sept 15th 2001, that's when the inconvenience for travellers started, took ages to get through at DM after 9/11. The date was picked as nearest to 9/12 when the Islamic army was defeated at Vienna in 1683, that attack was not self inflicted either.

Interestingly, just had a look at Thai Airways website and their info re luggage restrictions... And for right now, it doesn't made any mention of them having enforced the international restrictions on liquids and gels in carry on luggage.

But it didn't really matter much for international flights, because even if TH Air didn't enforce that on the outbound segment, the international airports in your destination countries like the U.S. DID and HAVE enforced those rules. So in the past, you might have been able to carry such items out, but you likely wouldn't have been able to bring them back thru the other airports' security screening.

 

Likewise, it looks like Thai Air Asia also has not been enforcing the liquids and gels restrictions on carry-on luggage either:

Old news.

My food items bought in Big-C was confiscated half year ago, on my way out.

 

Smoking ban is one thing, food items etc is laughable.

It's not an airline issue it's an airport issue.

As I posted above, they enforced the bans in 2007 as per the rest of the world.

1. You don't think it's odd that the airlines' websites re baggage restrictions -- which do talk about ammunition and various other things -- make no mention of the LAG restrictions.

 

2. If they've been enforcing LAGs all along, then what the heck is the OP article talking about some change now???

Law/rule enforcement ain't a strong point in Thailand.

It's on parallel with what passes as journalism on here 😎

Just more confiscated stuff for the airport staff to take home

Nah, they have a waste bin where one can deposite the items. Wife got caught a few years ago with creams and other stuff, she made sure to empty everything in the waste bin. If she couldn't use it, no one else (airport staff) should.
