TSA Christmas Traveling Tips 2012


Smartphone with My TSA App Screenshot
The MyTSA App: Want TSA information anywhere, anytime?  Use the MyTSA app. Among the great features, there’s a “Can I Bring My…” tool. Want to know if you can pack a turducken or a light saber? This is the tool for you. Type in the name of the item you’re curious about and it tells you if the item is permitted or not, along with packing tips. This isn’t a Magic 8 Ball, so please don’t expect it to prophetically answer yes and no questions. A wait time feature is also available. It relies on crowd sourcing, which means the more people who use it, the better. 



FruitcakeFoods: Cakes, pies, bread, donuts, turkeys, etc., are all permitted. Here is a list of items that should be placed in your checked bags or shipped: cranberry sauce, creamy dips and spreads (cheeses, peanut butter, etc.), gift baskets with liquid or gel food items (salsa, jams and salad dressings), gravy, jams, jellies, maple syrup, oils and vinegars, sauces, soups, wine, liquor and beer. As I said in last year’s post, contrary to popular belief, fruitcake is a delicious edible and permitted cake, not a WMD. 


TSA Precheck LogoRisk Based Expedited Screening: TSA has implemented TSA Pre✓™, an expedited prescreening initiative for known travelers, active duty service members and airline crewmembers at select airports, and modified procedures for screening passengers 12 and under and 75 and older to reduce, although not eliminate, the need for a pat-down. TSA Pre✓™ is currently available at 35 airports. 

Expanded Use of Canines: To further enhance explosive detection screening, TSA is expanding its use of canine teams and deploying them throughout the airport environment, including the security checkpoint. These teams are trained to detect trace amounts of explosives that are present in the air. 

Shaving Razors: You can get more info from our blog post on this subject where the pictures will answer all of your questions.


Food & PresentsWrapped gifts are allowed, but not encouraged: Wrapped gifts are allowed, but we recommend waiting until you land to wrap them. If there’s something in the gift that needs to be inspected, we may have to open it. Our officers try their best not to mangle the gift wrap, but it’s not a guarantee and it also slows down the line for everybody else when we have to do this. We’d rather unwrap the gifts that are under our trees.



Eggnog can be an alternate to fuel depending on who’s mixing it. Sometimes there’s a fine line between a beverage and hazmat. Just sayin’…Remember the 3.4 oz baggie rule at the checkpoint. Unless it’s in small container (3.4 oz or less), this tasty liquid treat is not allowed.

  • Beverages: Wine, liquor, beer, and all of your favorite beverages are permitted in your checked baggage. You can also bring beverages packaged in 3.4 oz or less bottles in your carry-on bags in the allowed in the 3.4 oz baggie.
  • Makeup: Any liquid makeup cosmetics such as eyeliner, nail polish, liquid foundation, etc., should be placed in the baggie. That goes for perfume as well. Powder makeup is fine.
  • Deodorant: Stick deodorant is not limited to 3.4 oz or less, but gel or spray deodorant is.
  • Gel Inserts for shoes are permitted.

Homemade Soda Machines and Other Gifts with Compressed Gas (CO2) Cartridges:  If you’re planning to take a homemade soda making machine on an airplane, be advised that they include CO2 carbinators, which contain compressed gas, to add the fizz to the soda.  Compressed gas cylinders are prohibited in both carry-on and checked bags unless the regulator valve is completely disconnected from the cylinder and the cylinder is no longer sealed (i.e. the cylinder has an open end).  The type of carbinator in commercial soda making machines do not have this feature.   We recommend shipping this item to be safe. 

Some Snow Globes are Permitted Now: TSA now allows small snow globes in carry-on luggage when packed in a passenger's plastic 3.4 oz bag. Snow globes that appear to contain less than 3.4 ounces (approximately tennis-ball size) will be permitted if the entire snow globe, including the base, is able to fit in the same one clear, plastic, quart-sized, re-sealable bag as a passenger’s other liquids.

Loaded Guns
Double Check Your Bag for Guns: Seriously!!! It sounds silly, but if you read our Week in Review posts, you’ll see that our officers find guns every day at checkpoints in the U.S. – some even loaded. Save yourself the hassle of a bag check, a police interview and a potential arrest by making sure you leave your gun at home.


Christmas Crackers: Not the kind you eat with a delicious cheese-ball (My mom makes the best), but the kind that “cracks” when you pull it apart. They’re really cool and are a part of a lot of people’s Christmas traditions, but they’re prohibited on aircraft.

TSA Contact Center Logo
TSA Contact Center: The Contact Center hours were recently extended and a representative is now available Monday – Friday, 8 a.m. – 11 p.m. Eastern time; weekends and federal holidays, 9 a.m. – 8 p.m. Eastern time. The TCC can be reached at 866-289-9673. Passengers can also reach out to the TSA Contact Center (TCC) with questions about TSA procedures, upcoming travel or to provide feedback or voice concerns. Unfortunately, we can’t assist with questions related to preparing a turkey or any other delicious holiday staples.

TSA Cares Helpline: Travelers or families of passengers with disabilities and medical conditions may call the TSA Cares helpline toll free 855-787-2227, 72 hours prior to traveling with any questions about screening policies, procedures and what to expect at the security checkpoint. A TSA Cares helpline representative is available during all TSA Contact Center hours.

Ugly sweater.
Christmas Sweaters: As I said in last year’s post, while some Christmas sweaters can have a nauseating effect on passengers, they are currently permitted through TSA checkpoints. After searching the web for my favorite Christmas sweater pic this year, I had to go with this one.

Follow us on Twitter for travel tips, blog post announcements, and other useful information. You can find a list of our national and regional twitter accounts here. Also, be sure to print out this handy travel checklist prior to packing. 

You can also visit TSA.gov and read our "What to Know Before You Go" page for even more travel tips.  

We hope these tips help improve your travel over the full Winter Holiday Travel period.

No one has every explained why they are not allowed on aircraft.

Is the TSA worried that spontaneous Christmas Cheer might suddenly break out on the aircraft?

Is the TSA worried that if you about 9,000 of them you might be able to blow up a small glass of water or at least make someone go momentarily deaf from the crack?

Why?

Why are Christmas Crackers not allowed on an Aircraft?

It is so sad that Bob Burns has time to post humoreous content on this blog but can't seem to find the time or back bone to address the terrible treatment of a 12 year girl in a wheel chair at DFW. It would also be nice to hear something from TSA about the treatment of the terminally ill lady which happened months ago. The cases of abuse at the hands of TSA just seem to be getting more common and more and more insulting to the American flying public. I hope you and the rest of TSA's wonderful work force have a Merry Christmas

RB said...

Do these tips include suggestions for 12 year old girls who are being detained and abused by TSA screeners?

Anonymous said...

Everyone should be screened like those in Pre.

No one should go through whole body scanners as a primary form of screening - keep away from them (and prevent skin cancer).

And yes, the TSA is apparently still terrified of jam, eggnogg and snowglobes. Can we take this agency seriously??

Regarding the Christmas Sweaters: While they are beautiful and festive, some of the ornamentation can cause problems with the detectors. Better to not wear them to the airport. Same thing with those nice jeans full of metal studs that your daughter just got from her Grandma.

I beg to differ... while fruit cake may not be a traditional weapon, its been known to create havoc with household plumbing, particularly post-consumption....

Bob,

You omitted one of the most obvious travel tips for the holiday season - avoid airports and the TSA altogether. This year the TSA attained a new low - the TSA is prominently featured on the ABC News site for its repeated pattern of misconduct. Until the TSA can be reformed, Americans should avoid or limit air travel altogether.

"while some Christmas sweaters can have a nauseating effect on passengers" Come on, the example you selected is not safe, at least, not safe for work! I think that's called Visual Terrorism at the least! hahaha.
Happy Holidays guys, keep up the good work.

Can I have your moms cheese ball recipe?

Anonymous said...

How is a pie allowed and so many other items not allowed. A pie would have much more liquid or gel than a lot of other banned items. For example, an apple pie will have more liquid or gel than a jar of peanut butter, yet the peanut butter is not allowed. It doesn't make any sense.

This would be much easier if the TSA would scrap or lessen the restrictions on liquids. You can test liquids. I've seen it happen at the gate area, so why can't random liquid testing be performed at the checkpoint?

Anonymous said...

Can you post any tips on what to expect when the TSA's explosives testing falsely identifies a passenger as having explosive residue on them? The test method that the TSA uses seems to generate a lot of false positives. I haven't heard of any actual bombs found with the TSA's testing method. It sounds like most of the time, the accused used the wrong soap.

Hi Bob,

In the spirit of the season, here's my gift to you:

THE TSA V. SHELBI WASLER, AGE 12

Report #1: TSA detains 12 yr old girl who has bone disease and is in a wheelchair for an hour because her parents raise chickens and keep her from her mother: http://www.wfaa.com/news/local/Parents-criticize-TSA-for-handling-of-girl-in-a-wheelchair-183456371.html

Report #2: TSA makes a non-apologetic apology (akin to "Sorry you felt bullied. We do a good job!") http://dfw.cbslocal.com/2012/12/17/tsa-apologizes-to-11-year-old-girl-detained-at-airport/

Report #3: TSA finally figures out Americans are very angry at the dept's treatment of little girl and her mother http://www.wfaa.com/news/local/tarrant/TSA-responds-after-detaining-ailing-girl-in-wheelchair-183896461.html

I'm glad there are two (out of 65,000) TSA employees who can be civil and polite to American citizens and deal with a public relations disaster in an appropriate manner.

Merry Christmas!

You mean the ones with the gunpowder in them? that's what causes them to crack. Or do you have a measurement for what amt of gunpowder should be allowed on an aircraft?

Anonymous said...

Bob,
Has the app been fixed yet or do you still get information on traveling with pets when you type in "ice" (as in frozen water)?
You see, since the app uses verbatim word matching, when you type in "ice", it looks at words with "Police" in them which then links to traveling with K-9s. So, typing in "Ice" will immediately bring up "How to travel with pets".
Yup. try it yourself.

"....Christmas Crackers... You mean the ones with the gunpowder in them? that's what causes them to crack. Or do you have a measurement for what amt of gunpowder should be allowed on an aircraft?"

Like I said... if you get about 9,000 of them you might have enough energy to damage... well nothing really. Even if you had 9,000 Crackers, or even just the Crack part of the Bon-Bon you wouldn't have enough material to do anything other than make a loud bang. And having two people try to pull apart a Christmas Cracker big enough to hold the 9,000 bits would be a bit obvious and the Bon-Bon wouldn't fit in the overhead so it would have to be checked anyway.

And they do not have gun powder in them. Ask the internets, they will confirm.

**********************************

I disagree with your supposition that most Americans support the TSA. Most Americans do not support having their family or themselves virtually stripped searched or inappropriately touched ("patdown") by a unionized government employee. Moreover, the repeated and continuous stories of misconduct illuminate a lack of leadership that must be pervasvie throughout the TSA. Americans deserve better.

To Anonymous who mistakenly believes that the "vast majority of us" support the TSA and keep us safe, Bob is the public face of the TSA, he writes in TSA-speak, refuses to answer questions, ignores and deflects.

That's why he is harassed constantly.

And, BTW, why didn't you leave your real name? I guess you, like the TSA, have a double standard.

How many travelers will be abused, assaulted, mistreated, or other injury by TSA screeners this holiday season? Untold Numbers!

How many travelers will be harmed by terrorist in the United States? Zero!

Anonymous said...

Good you realized that fruitcake is not a WMD. But toothpaste is? If toothpaste is so dangerous, why do you dump all the dangerous stuff in bins right beside your checkpoints?

RB said...

Other items confiscated by the TSA included a whip, an electric drill and sander, brass knuckles and replica hand grenades.


There are other items screeners recommend you leave at home, ranging from an assortment of saws, knives and replica guns to a spear gun and a homemade wooden mallet. All have been confiscated from travelers screened at TSA checkpoints, Lisa Farbstein, TSA spokeswoman at the airport, said Thursday afternoon.


So is TSA finally telling the truth about how items are confiscated at the checkpoint are did Lisa not get the message to lie?

Anonymous said...

Making sure to leave your gun at home?

Hey, dude, you DO realize that travelling with a firearm is perfectly legal, right?

How about you quit with the pseudo-helpful statism and suggest instead that they "make sure to place your firearm in a TSA approved case in your checked baggage.

@SkyWayManAz said...

Does anyone seriously believe Bob would say something on the wheelchair incident other then, "All proper procedures were followed." No video has been released so I'm doubting any will be. Same with pretty much all the high profile incidents recently. I'd like to have faith in the TSA, I really would, but they continually show they simply are not credible instead.

No one is ever 'strip searched'. The constant over exaggeration is quite boring. Just as not all TSA employees are bad, in any career field there are a few bad eggs that make all the others look bad. I think it is time for some folks to get a new hobby besides bashing TSA. If everyone worried about improving themselves instead of criticizing others the world would be a better place. Try turning over a new leaf for 2013, I am. Think positive, you will live longer!

********************************

A few bad apples in the TSA? Is that why ABC News listed the top 20 airports for TSA theft with multiple incidents by airport? The TSA argument that theft occurs everywhere is just another example of how many government bureaucrats have come to "accept the unacceptable". It's a sad and pathetic argument.

In addition, the TSA does virtually strip search Americans with backscatter machines. Moreover, only recently has the TSA agreed to conduct an independent study of the health effects of these machines AFTER millions of American families have already been exposed to these potentially harmful machines.

I agree that Americans need to do more than criticize the TSA - Americans need to demand change inside this disgraced agency in 2013.

Happy Holidays.

TSA Apologizes To Ruth Sherman And Lenore Zimmerman, Elderly Women Strip Searched At JFK


"It seems that TSA agents did violate agency policy when they strip searched two elderly women at JFK airport late last year."

I will stick with providing criticism of TSA since it is TSA that is violating not only our bodies but our civil rights.

"...Think positive, you will live longer!"

I am thinking positively. I will live much longer if I DONT get irradiated at the TSA Check Point.

"No one is ever 'strip searched'."

Really? Care to prove that? The TSA apologized to two senior citizens who were forced to disrobe to show medical applicances. Want to try again?

"The constant over exaggeration is quite boring."

So is the incompentence of the TSA.

"Just as not all TSA employees are bad, in any career field there are a few bad eggs that make all the others look bad."

Here, we agree. 99% of the TSA agents give the other 1% a bad name.

"I think it is time for some folks to get a new hobby besides bashing TSA."

Or maybe you shouldn't worry about other peoples' hobbies.

"If everyone worried about improving themselves instead of criticizing others the world would be a better place."

When the TSA stops mistreating the traveling public, I'll consider not criticizing it.

"Try turning over a new leaf for 2013, I am. Think positive, you will live longer!"

Great, motivational words from a screener. Yeah, I think I'll follow the advice of someone who goes through innocent people's bags for a living.

Pre✓ is merely an attempt to silence the most vocal critics of TSA. Pre✓ should be the default level of screening for all--unless "guilty until proven innocent" is the new American way.

I have no control over what someone else allows on a website but I think many of those type of comments were removed.

Still, the fact remains that the commnets are not in support of TSA and there is no reason to believe that crowd is a particular anti-TSA group but just a collection of general public commentors.

Bottom line, and something TSA should be taking onboard, is that the public in general rejects TSA and its abusive policies.

When ever I have to fly with gift, especially during the holidays, having them wrapped always tend to be a hassle. Sometimes it feels they have to open a carefully wrapped gift just for the heck of it. That's why I just stopped bringing wrapped gifts with me to the airport. I reuse some of the boxes I have from Papermart and wrap them later. The boxes are tough enough for air travel and some are decorative enough, I save on wrapping paper.
