PostSubject: Nove restrikcije na americkim aerodromima!!!   Fri 11 Aug - 6:41

BOSTON (Aug. 11) - Jeri Gaffney had $60 worth of lipstick - and it all went into the security screener's big gray tub at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport.

Waiting to pass through security, passengers stand in a line that stretches the length of the international terminal at Logan International Airport in Boston on Thursday.

"The next national security threat - mirrored mauve," she said as she headed for a St. Louis flight.

Donna Polledo of New Orleans was near tears, but she still had to throw out her bottle of Yves St. Laurent perfume. "This cost me more than $50," she said at Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport.

Sunscreen? Deodorant? Toothpaste? No, no and no, Judy DellaRipa learned.

"It's irritating," she said at Bradley International Airport, not far from her home in East Hartford, Conn. "I guess safety-wise it's probably good. I just think they should have told you ahead of time."

There was a lot of grousing and a lot of waiting in the nation's airports Thursday as passengers made a rough adjustment to a U.S. ban on liquids and gels, prompted by the announcement that a foiled terror plot would have used explosives disguised as such harmless items. British authorities arrested 24 people they allege were plotting to bomb several U.S.-bound planes.


"It's better alive than dead. It's inconvenient, but we'll make it."
-Bob Chambers, traveler delayed in Baltimore

The restrictions forced people to unpack their carry-on bags on the floor in the middle of terminals to remove the prohibited items. Some travelers tried to squeeze makeup, sunscreen and other toiletries into their checked baggage, where liquids were permissible.

But people without checked bags or those who had already given their luggage to their airline had to throw out the banned items. Trash bins quickly filled with tubes of toothpaste, bottles of shaving cream, lotion and bottled water.

"It smelled expensive," Kevin Clancy, an airport employee in Cleveland, said of the fragrances emanating from the bags he hauled away.

Virtually no liquid was safe from confiscation: Security workers chucked Napa Valley wine in San Francisco, hot sauce in New Orleans and maple syrup in Vermont. The only exceptions, medications and baby formula, had to be presented for inspection.

Anger over the losses of beverages and beauty aids often was directly related to their cost.

"For $2 I'd rather be safe," Carey Dean told his girlfriend after she was forced to throw out her purple lipstick before they got on a flight from New Orleans to Florida. "I totally agree," Mary Chiasson replied.

Other security measures were also ramped up at airports across the nation. Gov. Mitt Romney sent the National Guard to help patrol Boston's Logan Airport for the first time since the Sept. 11 attacks, when terrorists hijacked two planes from there and flew them into the World Trade Center. Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger also activated the National Guard in California, and Gov. George Pataki in New York considered doing the same.

With the new rules came long delays. At Newark Airport in New Jersey, one security checkpoint line stretched the entire length of the terminal - roughly six football fields.

"That's part of the price you pay for traveling during a time like this," said Julius Ibraheem, 26, a college counselor from Chicago, as he stared at the long lines leading toward security checkpoints at O'Hare Airport.

At Baltimore/Washington Airport, security workers opened every carry-on bag that passed through one terminal, and all morning flights were delayed.

"It's better alive than dead," said Bob Chambers, whose flight from Baltimore to Detroit for a business meeting was delayed more than an hour. "It's inconvenient, but we'll make it."

The ban on liquids and gels covered such things as shampoo, toothpaste, contact lens solution, perfume and water bottles. Liquids were allowed in checked bags because those suitcases are screened for explosives and are stowed in the cargo hold beyond passengers' reach.

Tina Sarafa heeded the warnings but still paid a price at Los Angeles International Airport. The youngest of her four children had a breakdown in a long airport line, desperate for something her mother was warned not to take.

"Can't you give me some water?" 2-year-old Isabella complained.

"I know you want water, I'm sorry, Mommy's thirsty too," Sarafa said, sighing with frustration. "This is what it will be the whole way there: 'I'm thirsty. I'm hungry.' You feel so bad because they're so little."

People flying to Britain also were ordered not to carry laptop computers, cell phones and iPods. Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff set the plotter had planned to set off explosives with detonators disguised as electronic devices.

U.S. authorities raised the threat level to "red" for flights from Britain, the first time the highest threat of terrorist attack had been invoked since the system was created. All other flights were under an "orange" alert - one step below red.

Some people solved their carry-on baggage problems by simply giving items away. In Manchester, N.H., airport officials offered padded envelopes and paid the postage to mail items home.

Laura Yeager left four bottles of Gucci and Cartier perfume for the hotel maid before heading to the Atlanta airport for her flight back to Philadelphia. She still had to give up her lip gloss at the security checkpoint.

She just shrugged and tossed it. "It's better to feel safe. We thought it was going to be a lot worse," she said.

Brandon Usher, flying to Belize from Miami International Airport, may have had the worst timing: He was bringing large amounts of mouthwash and toothpaste to his father, a dentist.

"I have a whole lot of what you're not supposed to take," he said.

Totalno iritirajuce!Sad sam odgledala vijesti,na kojima je,naravno,glavna tema aerodrom i promijenjeni propisi bezbjednosnih pretresa putnickih prtljaga.Situacija-za plakat`.
Posto krajem mjeseca putujem za Tampu,sama s Nikolicom i Lukom,naravno da ce ekstra otezavajuca okolnost biti to sto cemo u redu za security checking cekati ko zna koliko dugo,a pri tom biti izlozeni zedji i nemogucnosti da se nesto gricne.
Naravno,ovog puta ne mogu sa sobom u rucnoj prtljazi nositi ni lap top,ni njihove elektronske zezalice kojima bi se zabavili za vrijeme cekanja,ono,apsolutno nista sto je postalo sastavni dio nasih potreba za ispunjnavanjem 'rupa u vremenu',ali najgore od svega je sto u torbi ne mogu imati flasu vode da se klinci okrijepe pri potrebi.
Zene koje nose infant formulu za bebache moraju pred obezbjedjenjem otpiti koji gutljaj iste,kako ce dokazati da je oslobodjeno eksplozivnih supstanci(hehe),pa me zato najvise muci,zasto ne mozemo isto tako proci i sa vodom.

Postoje slucajevi da su putnici kancelovali letove,a jedna zena je to uradila cak zbog svog omiljenog karmina kojeg nije htjela baciti u 'smece'.

Dakle,tecnost,paste,gelovi i elektronske sprave i spravice,ukoliko ne zelite da ostanete bez njih,treba popakovati u putnicke kofere.

Cool,ha?
