What's allowed on domestic flights? (fruits? vegetables?)


Quote  |  Reply

I'm flying soon and I was wondering what's allowed on domestic flights?

I wanted to take baby carrots and apples but I wasn't sure if those would be allowed... (I was going to take some beef jerky too but it got lost in my shopping cart! GR!)

Not really sure what's allowed, but my family and I go to egypt every year to visit family and my mom always packs snacks in a carry on bag. Crackers, little pouches of fruit snacks, etc. My mom doesn't pack fresh stuff because it is a fourteen hour flight, and it's even longer if you don't fly straight through. Check the airline's website to see what is allowed,

On a domestic flight you can take anything!  The only thing you can't bring with you is any liquid, aerosol or gel over 100ml (about 3oz), but you can buy a drink to take onboard once you are through security. :)

Domestic, you can bring whatever you want.  As a flight attendant, I see people bring on takeout (from outside restaurants).  As long as it's not a beverage, you can bring it through security.  I don't think peanut butter is considered a "liquid or gel", so you could bring that through as well.  Ice packs are "security approved" too, so if you want to bring something that needs minor refridgeration, you can do that too.  I always encourage passengers to bring their own food.  You eat healthier, and you never know what could go wrong, as something always seems to go wrong in air travel, especially this time of year, due to weather, and deicing programs that are initiated in the colder climates.  It's always good to be prepared!  Hopes this helps!

Thanks! I brought an apple, some cereal, carrots, and my tuna on the go lunch pack. (yeah.. it was in my cabinet so I just grabbed it) it's a bit smelly but I ate it in a corner in the airport. MEH.

Thanks! I'll be even more prepared for my returning flight ^_^

People used to bring live lobsters on flights out of Boston and let them run down the aisle.

But I don't think that's allowed anymore.

 LOL! Were they considered pets, or food?

I've brought an entire backpack full of Subway subs for a family of 5. No problem.

glad you made it safely. if your flight is long maybe you should try some denser food stuffs like trail mix and dried fruit or larabars. 

The only things you cannot bring are liquids... so if you want to bring carrots and apples, by all means go for it!

Whenever I go on plane flights I always bring along a hamburger of some sort (be it elk, bison, beef, ostrich...) and I never get asked questions... Granted I wrap it in tin foil, put it in tubberware and then put a grocery bag around the whole thing... wait, that sort of sounds like I am smuggling a bomb, so now I am shocked they never ask questions! ha ha!

hmm.. I'm going to Mexico in January and I've been stressing about what I'm going to eat on the plane

heaven forbid I'm forced to consume that nasty plane food... uck its always a burnt cheese bun sandwich with a millimeter thick slice of processed turkey yuck!

I want to bring a zip lock baggie of protein powder but I fear I'll get accused of smuggling COCAINE!!

Ya that may not be the best idea... considering NOW airplane travel is going to be EVEN MORE tedious...

My mom brings a whole bunch of health powders with her (carry on) when she travels and she always is treated like a terrorist because all her powders are extremely organic. It's actually quite funny but at the same time really sad, because here my mother is trying to be extremely healthy but airport security doesn't see it as such because most believe food = burgers, fries and a coke!

If you want to bring protein powder, you might just have to put it in your checked bag which would defeat the purpose of bringing something to eat on the plane... how about some hard boiled eggs or foods that airport security is familiar with?
