    I never lost a bag in my life until Christmas of this year- they lost it going into Puerto Rico and took about 30 hours getting it back to me. Then on my very next trip, they lost it in Australia and took about 8 hours getting it back to me.

    There was a report earlier this year about how there has been a huge increase in lost luggage recently.

    explain to me again why we need toothpaste on an airplane? they don't serve food any more and if you suffer from hallitosis that is that bad you aren't going to pick up anybody on the airplane anyway.

    Checking baggage is a HUGE hassle- at Dulles it takes like an hour to get your checked bags because the terminals are remote from the main building.

    And she's talking about TOILETRIES, not Starbucks or cell phones. Who the **** are these ****ing terrorists to tell US what we can and can't take on planes?

    flying is popular...lots of people - lots of bags...the safety of the whole flight takes precedence over the luxury of a few...check the bags...and again, why do you need to carry ANYTHING on a plane??

    ever take a 15 hour flight to Australia? Ever been stuck in an airport for 20 hours because of a storm? Ever have an airline lose your luggage and you have no toothpaste when you get to the destination, then you have to spend YOUR time and YOUR money looking for it? Frequent business travelers ALWAYS carry toiletries on the plane for precisely these scenarios.

    and again: we are letting the terrorists dictate our actions. Regardless of how minor the change is, they are changing the way we do things and we shouldn't be allowing that to happen.

    Sure, that's it, just snap your fingers and "build it into" an X-ray machine. Never mind that the machine they use to sniff for explosives is quite large and complex. We'll just slap it on the nearest X-ray machine so everybody can be happy.

    Op, you're losing any rational thought, give it up buddy.

    Op, I have been to Thailand...I have been to Ukraine...I have been to England...I have flown all over this country...I have been a business traveler...nothing is that much of an inconvience...unless you are going into the deep sub-Sahara all those places have stores that you can buy toothpaste at.

    BTW, the terrorists are not telling us what to do...

    flying is a luxury anyway, if you dont want to waste the time in the airport drive, take a train or bus

    Do you know how ridiculous this logic sounds when you put it in other contexts?

    "No one can bring toothpaste on planes because someone, somewhere might try to hide explosives in a toothpaste tube."

    Apply it to driving:

    "No one can consume alcohol in a building with a parking lot because someone might leave and drive drunk".

    Or the Internet:

    "No one can use Myspace anymore because pedophiles and rapists use it to meet their victims".

    In those cases, does the safety of the many outweigh the luxury of the few?

    Funny how so many people bitch about having their civil liberties infringed on by the gov't when we use secret wiretaps and other measures to try and catch terrorists but they are the ones who bitch the loudest and demand we find a way to stop the terrorists when they can't carry a tube of toothpaste on an airplane. Un-freaking-real!

    well, being that I'm not an FAA employee, I have never seen one of these sniffer machines and you conveniently left out the size portion of it.

    But why can't they reduce the size? Almost every electronic device has been reduced in size in recent years.

    Last time I checked, people weren't flying Myspace into buildings or blowing it up killing hundreds at a pop and causing BILLIONS in economic losses.

    and how many people can you kill by blowing up an airplane? 300? 400? You can kill way more than that with a fertilizer bomb- should be ban fertilizer and make the farmers go back to 17th century techniques? The safety of the many outweighs the needs of the few farmers who use the stuff legitimately.

    WTF is your problem? For your information, I DO read books on planes. I don't drink coffee or talk on the phone. But to be denied water because it's "dangerous" is absurd! And, it has nothing to do with making a plane my bedroom, it has to do with CONVENIENCE! I don't check my bags. I rarely do. I find it a HUGE hassle to deal with baggage claim. I've waited over 45 minutes for my bags during one flight. And for a less than 3 hour flight, that's an absurd waste of my time. People fly because it's supposed to be FAST AND EASY! Not to mention, I've seen the way bags are treated by the handlers. They are thrown and I've seen several EACH TIME I FLY fall off the conveyer belt onto the ground. I'm sorry if I would prefer to have MY items in MY control while I'm traveling.


    There's not a stone in my heart I've left unturned
    Not a piece of my soul that I ain't searched
    The only answer I found for all this hurt
    Is there ain't not answer here on earth
