Re: Easyjet question

You're controlled by airport security, not the airline. Some countries impose extra security but unless you're going to Israel I doubt you'll be affected.

Re: Easyjet question

I'm guessing you're talking about liquids in your hand luggage.

Any medicines over 100ml would need probably need a doctors note.

This is from Heathrow's FAQ, but is probably pretty common around Europe.

No problem with medications per se, even strong stuff, although a doctor's note is required if you need to inject, and might be useful if you're using diamorphine or similar. Is 3 oz less than 100ml? If so you'll be fine without one.

I often travel with strong painkillers such as morphine and have never been questioned.

Re: Easyjet question

Why not have just what you need for the day in your handluggage, and the rest in your hold luggage? Go to the chemist's and ask for a small bottle to decant some for travelling.

Re: Easyjet question

3 oz. = 100 ml (probably not exactly, but that is the measurement as given by the US airlines).

If I'm not mistaken, a bottle of tylenol is larger than said 3 oz, and you wouldn't need that much to give your child for the duration of one flight.

Coop City sells small, empty plastic bottles exactly for such purposes. They even have a set of them in a clear plastic case so you don't have to use a ziplock and it will fit nicely in your bag, to keep handy to take out and show to security. Just fill up one of those. At least then there is no question as to whether they will take it from you and toss it into their no-no bins.

And I also wouldn't suggest just bringing a half emtpy bottle of something that was larger than 3 oz. (100 ml). I tried that once. It didn't matter that it was almost empty, security confiscated it anyway.

Re: Easyjet question

The other day one old lady had her tweezers confiscated and thrown in the bin at GVA airport.
Then you go through and Swiss army knives are for sale to take on board. Talk about double-standards. I said this to the sales woman in the shop and she said you can't kill somebody with a 5cm blade. You bet?
I'd say it is easier to kill somebody with a Swiss army knife than a pair of tweezers, no? Money talks!? Sorry for diversion.

Re: Easyjet question

In the states anything baby-related they let you take on in your carry-on, ex: formula, water, baby food, medicine, etc. I am not checking any bags and need to bring some basic medicine in case I need it fo rmy toddler while I'm away. I was just wondering if the bottle is larger than 100 ml/3 oz will they take it away? In the states they will not if it is for a child.

Re: Easyjet question

Normal stuff a child needs (e.g. milk) no problem. Medicine (whether for a child or not) over 100 ml will need a doctor's note. I believe that should be the same in the US. Otherwie you could bring anything and just say "baby needs it". Such as a litre of gin. Silly alcoholic baby, but what ya gonna do!

Be careful; (British) security have been known to get uppity if the bottles aren't in a clear ziplock bag

Re: Easyjet question

They will probably confiscate it! I would decant it into smaller bottles (think you can buy travel size plastic bottles in Manor) and then put in a clear zip lock bag.

Re: Easyjet question

I don't know about Tylenol but Calpol also comes in single sachets, as well as 100ml bottles. Same for Children's Nurofen.

Formats:
CALPOLŪ Infant Suspension (Strawberry flavour, 100ml and 200ml)
CALPOLŪ Sugar Free Infant Suspension (Strawberry flavour, 100ml and 200ml)
CALPOLŪ Infant Suspension Sachets (Strawberry flavour, 12 x 5ml and 20 x 5ml)
CALPOLŪ Sugar Free Infant Suspension Sachets (Strawberry flavour, 12 x 5ml and 20 x 5ml)
You may not be able to get it here but it's available almost everywhere else.
