Wife just phoned to ask and yes, solid foods like my cheese & bread I carry and NOT allowed  😥

 

That's surprising, since it's kind of hard to make a bomb or other explosive device out of solid CHEESE!!! (I think!) -- But still should be allowed in your checked-in bags, since today's announcement appears to only pertain to carry-on luggage.

 

Who did the wife contact to pose that question???

 

PS - It's kind of funny. Every now and again, my wife flies upcountry to visit her family. And because I liked it when I've visited with her parents before, her Mom always cooks up a big batch of panang curry that my wife ends up carrying back for me on the airplane in her carry-on luggage using those plastic "Safe Lock" food boxes.

 

I'm not so sure about your cheese... But based on today's announcement, I'm pretty sure my mother in law's panang curry is going to be a No-No for the future in my wife's carry-on bags!!!  :wacko:

Hells Bells! Krispy Kreme donut outlets inside airports will immediately be going out of business!

No big loss, I can't see how their donuts are any different to the other popular brands, except outrageous prices.

It was clarified in the thread that this is hand luggage only.

 

So checked-in baggage is still unrestricted ?? My next trip I need to take my wife lots of her favourite moisturisers etc and that will run into 15 bottles or so !  I hope that is not a problem - otherwise I'll have to post them a few at a time at great cost...  She is over there looking after her father for a few months.

Presumably this only applies to outgoing, and not incoming flights. Since specialties are so overpriced here, more than likely most of us would be bringing in special cheeses, chocolates, and other delicacies that only the Shinawatras and other billionaires here can afford.

 

So, maybe this is just a big nothing.

I have carried frozen food e.g. cheese, curries etc on domestic flights many times - now seems even that is stopped  😡

"All items must be under 100 milliliters or they cannot come into passenger areas or be carried on planes."

 

So I believe the option is still there to put it in your checked in luggage?

Is this IATA or Thailand only ??

clearly someone does not have a notion of proportionate measures.

Gone are the days of travelling light, i.e. hand luggage only.

Recently a pair of scissorlings (cutting blade 15 millimetres) in a small clothes mending kit was confiscated, strangely enough the needles were not.

Then a dangerous pocket knife with a blade shorter than the brush part of a toothbrush and, most dangerously, a 15 mm cork screw that might protrude about 5 millimetres when held between fingers, were tossed in the second hand bin..

So, now if I have a chapstick in my handbag to alleviate the dryness of my lips I need a med certificate? 
And some toothpaste, or higher powers forbid one of those razors with four extremely sharp 1 mm protruding blades will be tossed ?

What is next?
my pen ?
the detachable keyboard of a laptop ?
or a sharp tongue ?

Is this IATA or Thailand only ??

My question is: why the magic 100 ml limit ?

Any Jihad chemist worth his salt could come up with a fairly nasty explosive or incendiary, combining 3 or more ingredients from 100 ml containers.

The correct thing to do would be to ban any quantity of a banned substance that could be carried on board an aircraft by a passenger.  When flying, I wonder if the checked baggage comes under such rigorous scrutiny as our hand luggage, or is it all just a show to make us passengers feel more safe ?

And we all have to thank the Islamic terrorist for that, who made traveling a pain in the ass with all the security scrutinise time consuming and the billions that it costs the airlines which we the travelers ultimately pay for... 

If you still believe Islamic terrorists living in caves masterminded the World Trade Center bombings your either really gullible or simply delusional.

 You're being a bit dense...

 

The OP article says BAN, but what it really says in the details is no individual item of the banned list can exceed 100 ml, and the total of such items cannot exceed 1 Kg. in a single bag.

 

That's essentially the rule that has applied to carry on luggage internationally for a long time.

 

 

So plan on leaving your big sizes of toothpaste, shampoo and shaving foam at home, and get used to carry the little mini sized travel portions when flying.

 

Thai will be selling perfumes etc when you arrive at DOUBLE the normal price

Guess the airport wants to make more money from the shops inside

Correct! I remember a few years ago - before the "universal" smoking ban, I had to throw my (fortunately disposable) lighter into a large plastic container beside the X ray machine. Once I had cleared Security, in the Departure Lounge I bought another one - at about 3 times the price as the one I had thrown away!

Am I reading that right? 🤔
