    I’m flying back to the US after being in London for 10 days on vacation. I’m flying back to Baltimore with a connecting flight in JFK. Can someone please explain the process of going through border control and customs. I was told that I have to put my checked bag through security and then put it back on the transfer belt so it can be placed on the plane to Baltimore. I’m a little nervous because I’m bringing back 2 mugs that I got from the Tower of London and Motown the Musical as souvenirs. Any help/advice would be appreciated. Thanks in advance

  • Is it legal for a minor to take a lighter onto a plane?

    Best answer: The lighter MUST be carried as a Carry-On, and has to be a disposable or Zippo style lighter, torch type lighters are banned from aircraft. As long as the lighter itself is legal TSA isn't going to go looking to bust minors. However, if you do give them a reason to search your bags and they discover you are... show more
    Best answer: The lighter MUST be carried as a Carry-On, and has to be a disposable or Zippo style lighter, torch type lighters are banned from aircraft. As long as the lighter itself is legal TSA isn't going to go looking to bust minors. However, if you do give them a reason to search your bags and they discover you are underage you could be in trouble.

    In most of the US you are just fine as a minor to have just a lighter, but if you are also found with ANY tobacco or illegal drugs that becomes "paraphernalia" which is illegal in just about every jurisdiction. Just the fact you have a lighter may give them justification to do an additional search. If you end up being detained by the TSA it would probably result in you being turned over to the local authorities, having your parents contacted, and probably end up with a ticket. If this causes you to miss your flight the airline won't care and you will need to pay for another flight.

    If you are not in the US you probably should look up the local laws.

  • Why did I set off the metal detector?

    It was my first flight in Birmingham UK airport. I had gold earrings in, I read on the internet they’d be fine to wear. I weren’t wearing anything metal on me at all. But on the morning the back off my earring fell off, do you think it could have been that? It was so embarrassing I had to stand like a star while... show more

But on the morning the back off my earring fell off, do you think it could have been that? It was so embarrassing I had to stand like a star while the woman patted my back and checked my shoes to be told it’s fine I can go. I don’t want it happening on my flight home?

  • Is it weird to be a male flight attendant?

    I'm a guy and I love flying. It's so exhilarating!! I am too chicken to become a pilot though cause that is too much of a responsibility and way too much training. So would it be weird to become a flight attendant since most flight attendants are women? Thanks for answering!

  • What could've happened to the Malaysia Airlines Flight 370?

    I came across some YouTube videos on this case from 2014 and it is still a confusing mystery to me. How can a flight with over 200 passengers just go missing off the radar? It's very chilling to think of what those passengers could have experienced. What are your theories on this case? Thanks for your answers!
