So I've been looking up "what to bring" restrictions for my flight. I was refered to this site from my e-ticket. I have copy and pasted for your enjoyment:
Other potentially dangerous items not permitted include:
- Cigarette lighters
- Non-safety matches
- Toy or replica guns (plastic or metal)
- Sharp items including household cutlery, knives with blades (of any length), paper knives, razor blades, darts.
- Hypodermic syringes (If you have a medical reason that means you need to inject during the flight you are permitted to carry syringes in the cabin. However, you must be able to produce medical evidence, such as a doctor's letter indicating the name of the person to whom the equipment is prescribed, when you check in and/or at security screening. The letter should be kept with you at all times.)
- Scissors (scissors with blunt/round-ended blades, metal or plastic, less than 6cms in length or scissors with metal blades and pointed tips under 3cms are permitted)
- Sporting bats
- Billiard, snooker, pool cues
- Tradesmen's tools
- Any dangerous articles such as flammables, erosives, poisons, radioactive materials, ammunition, firearms or explosives
That's right, friends. I know you really wanted to bring that replica catapult with you to the Bahamas but Virgin Atlantic says no.
