Airport/airplane security-filter: have you flown from DTW since yesterday?
posted by number9dream to travel & transportation (7 answers total)
I have a 10am flight from DTW to BWI on Wednesday. I am flying on Northwest/Delta. I need to check one bag, and there is no way I can avoid doing so. My questions are:
1) How much time should I leave myself to get through security?
2) Any specific new security measures I should be aware of? In particular, are liquids in containers of < 3oz still ok?
3) I've heard that one is not allowed to access personal items during the last hour of a flight. Is this only true of international flights to the US, or does it also apply to flights within the US? Does that mean that I'm not allowed to, e.g., read a book or listen to my iPod during that time?
