The following is a short list of foods that cannot be taken onto an airplane. We are concern about these things because by now, if not all of us, most of us knows that since September the eleventh, two thousand and one, on that faithful day, when Americans and to a greater extent, man-kind was attacked and exposed., airport security have changed. Granted, some of us believe that it has not changed for the better, while some of us just go with the flow. However, changed for the better, or for the worst, it has changed and changes have occurred in the food department.
It is always best to check with the airline you are about to use to see their rules concerning this topic. However, these general rules apply.
Liquid and Gel
Passengers are not allowed to carry any liquid or gel that is more than 100ml (3.4oz). This rule also included opened or closed baby food.
Jams and Jellies
Jams and jellies are not allowed in your carry-ons and the size of the jar does not matter.
Although gravy could be consider to be liquid, it is not allowed on the plane.
Some could argue that salad dressing is also liquid, but neither is this allowed.
Some passengers may enjoy eating a bowl of soup as they soar in the sky on these mechanical birds, but they are not allowed to bring their own with them. If you are someone who might enjoy a bowl of soup during your flight, when you are making your reservation, you could ask to see it you could purchase it on board.
Pies and Cakes
You are allow to take pies and cakes in your carry-ons. However, they may be “double checked” by security. This could mean that your pies and cakes may not make it onto the tarmac with you, and even if they do, they may not be in their original condition.
Meals Ready To Eat – MRE
Meals Ready to Eat and self-heating meals or beverages are not allowed either.
Meals Ready To Eat or MRE is package meals that is intended to be used by a country’s military soldiers while they are out in the “field.” This is not to say that this rule is targeted at soldiers, this food is also sold to those who are not in the military.
Passengers could also take a look at the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) website to find out more about this topic.
