Flying with Christmas Crackers

We were talking at the Pot Belly's Christmas Roast Buffet; which was fabulous btw - really good gammon and the roasties are getting even better not to mention the roast parsnips...and then christmas pud and custard but I digress.

Anyway the question about bringing back Christmas Crackers from the UK came up. So I checked the BA website (I am flying with them) and found out that:

Christmas crackers cannot be taken in your hand baggage. They must be carried in your checked baggage only.
In addition the following restrictions apply:
  • Maximum two boxes per passenger
  • The crackers must be commercially manufactured
  • The crackers must be in the manufacturer's original packaging
  • The crackers must be for personal use only
  • Homemade crackers are not permitted
  • Crackers are not permitted on any flights out of London City airport
Some airports may have further restrictions on crackers. Please check with the airport before you travel. you can have up to 2 boxes per person in checked luggage EXCEPT if flying through London City airport

Relevant web page is below........


Just checked the Easyjey web site and they say you can bring up to 2 boxes in original packaging as hand luggage BUT London Gatwick and Standsted say they have to be in your checked luggage

Couldn't find anything on Swiss web sites...someone else might know.

So if you have anyone coming over for Christmas you can still have them, and if you are hosting a post December Christmas meal (that will be me) then I will be buying them in the sale and bringing them back....did I mention I am Scottish!!
