I've never flown commercially before. Is there still a long list of items not allowed on a carry on bag? I know that I should take a pair of clothes with me (just in case I lose my luggage). I plan on taking a book and my mp3 player. What about snacks or beverages? A no-no?

Beverages a no-no.

Snacks are only allowed if they're magically delicious.

Easiest thing is to check most of your bags. Don't bring any of your toiletries on your carry on, otherwise they have to be in a ziplock bag and less than 4 oz. Getting through security at MCI is a breeze. But when you are coming back, make sure to get there at least an hour and a half early.

Saggysack

Toiletries and makeup, just think 3oz. or smaller and you are golden. Any sharp objects, like finger nail clippers and the such just put in checked and you will be good. On the bright side, you can bring your new drill! But it will have to be in checked baggage as well. Absolutely no gels of any kind, even in your shoes.

You can bring on beverages after you have passed thru security. Buy after passing through is always a good practice. Snacks 3oz or less.

I always try to travel with just a carry on. Granted, you can't have a lot of toiletries, but it sure beats standing in line for 8,000 hours when they lose your stuff. If you have to check something be sure to take at least a change of clothes in your carry on.

Not checking your luggage is very rude and inconsiderate to your fellow travelers.

Agreed..Carry on's must fit in the measuring box. why I travel light. Mix and match you'd be surprised what you can carry on for a week.

Oh and get a seat in row with THE EXIT DOOR. the row is 6 inches wider.

If you sit by that door, you must be big enough to throw the door off the plane incase of an emergency landing. You'll also be first off the plane if you survive. :D

I only do it if I can fit my shit in one overhead bin, like you are supposed to. If not, then I have to check a bag like the rest of society. I'm a dude that can get by with not much, so I can fit it in one suitcase particularly if it is only for a weekend or something.

But whatever, knock me out if you wish.

They need to just get rid of those damn overhead bins, it's bullshit that everyone has to wait for those idiots to round up all of their crap before they can get off of the plane. You can carry a change of clothes and some basics in a bag small enough to fit on the floor under your seat. There's no reason anyone should have to carry on a friggin' suitcase with them.

If you carry-on shampoo and stuff like that there is a size restriction on those, plus they have to be in clear plastic bottles and in a zip lock type bag for security. No tools. Beverages cannot be taken through security but once past security you can buy a coke or pepsi and take them onto the plane.

Carry ons are limited, but many take more than what they should. It sounds like you are prepared for the trip.

Jacksonville Beach and Atlantic Beach are OK. There is plenty of beach to visit, take plenty of sun block. The worst burn I ever got was at Jax Beach.

There used to be a steak house in Jax, don't remember where, but it was called "The Tree Steakhouse". all they served was ribeye. They would bring out a 10 pound length of ribeye and you had them cut it as thick as you wanted it. You paid by the ounce. It was the best steak I have ever had.

Apparently it is still there:

Like others have said, keep your bottles of liquid (e.g. cosmetics) under 3 oz. and in a clear plastic ziplock type bag. Put as much of your stuff as possible in your checked baggage. It wouldn't hurt to have an extra ziplock bag in your carry on bag in case they find something that needs to be bagged that you didn't think about.

Wear shoes that are easy to slip on and off because you will have to run them through the xray machines at the security check points. Minimize the amount of metal you wear and have in your pockets. Put your cell phone and your keys and any other metal objects in your purse before you get to the xray machines so you don't have to mess around with them separately.

If you're flying out of Springfluff you'll probably be on a regional jet that connects to a hub (Chicago, Atlanta, etc.). There's not nearly the storage, so you're limited in the size of the luggage you can carry on. At least carry on a change of clothes, keys, wallet/purse, and any meds you need.

No, it's not! How so? The airlines provide overhead bins for passenger storage and limit carry-ons to a specific number and size. So, if I get your meaning correctly then people who follow the airlines carry-on luggage policies are "rude and inconsiderate"? That is a stupid comment. If someone brings carry-on's larger than the airline policy - then it is the airlines responsibility to police and they are rude and inconsiderate.

We never flew for any family vacations when I was young. When I got older though there was always something going on. This year there will at least be Hawaii. LA always a couple times a year.
