"Accordingly we are raising the threat level, or we have raised the threat level, with respect to aviation in general, to High, or Orange. That will cover all in-bound international flights, other than flights from Great Britain, and it will cover all flights within the United States itself.
We're taking some additional specific steps. In light of the nature of the liquid explosive devices which were designed by the plotters, we are temporarily banning all liquids in carry-ons in aircraft cabins. That means no liquids or gels will be allowed in carry-on baggage."
The Wikipedia home page has links to the story, and all the relevant aspects, as it develops.

Although this might put those looking to bring back a couple bottles from the duty free store under a bit more scrutiny.

That is good Alan Moss, but I do wonder if events will snowball leading to the restrictians being applied to even checked luggage.
Maybe that's just the salesman in me coming out!

When they temporarily banned knitting needles, I got really pissed. Like I was gonna commandeer aircraft with a #2 circular needle? Not bloody likely...
Rant over. Carry on.

Yikes!!! I have been out of town for a couple of days. We were taking my kids to the airport in Spokane. Strangely, they let Pensieve through security with a leatherman (no, she is not a mountain woman).
I am not a mountain woman, technically it's a leatherman "Squirt", it's a baby! and I only have it because I love baby anythings, Shai bought me baby UNO cards just the other day, soo cute

But you are definitely a Montana Woman. I've got a micra leatherman. It is even smaller than the squirt I used to have. Definitely handy to have around and oh so cute. It is the hip fashion accessory to have. Right up there with the gun rack and rifles in the pickup truck window.

If you're travelling from say the UK to the US you're likely to be having checked luggage anyway. No big deal.
If you have transfers it's really only a good thing not having to carry around the extra weight between flights.
I've travelled a lot and I have NEVER (thank you God) had any trouble with luggage getting lost or anything like that. The worst that can happen is that it gets delayed and they bring it to your hotel or wherever you're staying.
In most cases you're even entitled to compensation through your travel insurance.
So what if you can't bring a toothbrush on the plane, or your hair-gel... It's not a fucking fashion show.
I prefer having to check all my luggage instead of getting any plane in the world blown up by a bunch of no-good idiot dumb fucks.

In the recent UK terror plot, the law enforcement/intelligence community did their job and the plan was foiled. To me, this seems like the defense that should be the focus. I just don't think taking away my Binaca is going to make anyone any happier.
