A little less security theatre
Just in time for our next international jaunt, the current hand luggage restrictions on flights from the UK are being eased.
Hand baggage restrictions imposed in the UK after an alleged terrorist plot to attack airliners are to be eased from Friday, the government has said.Here's the full announcement from the DTI's web site.
Passengers will still only be allowed one piece of luggage but the maximum size permitted will increase to that of a small roller-suitcase.
The new size limit for carry-on luggage will increase to 56cm x 45cm x 25cm (22in x 17.75in x 9.85in approx).
