So there I was making fun of airport security and the big UK raid happens and another crisis is averted. It will change the way we fly to and from the UK for the foreseeable future.The UK Department for Transport has requested UK airports employ additional security measures to ensure passenger safety including preventing carrying regular hand luggage onboard an aircraft including handbags.
You can take wallets and pocket size purses with essential cards, keys, travel documents, prescription medication, unboxed sanitary items. Anything liquid is going to be quite suspect.
We will all be hand searched and our footwear x-rayed. I will be researching ways to make your flying easier under these trials and tribulations, so stay tuned.
I joked about grunting but, gulp, I think I may be on to something! Wasn’t there a time when flying was fun? Oh well, it will be nice to be patted down by someone at least, even if s/he is wearing a uniform.
