you can take some stuff, but i’m still going to starve

Again, let me reiterate, that I’m happy nothing was bombed. And I did find a list of what is allowed:

The Department for Transport said that all cabin baggage would be processed as hold baggage and carried in the holds of aircraft departing UK airports with immediate effect. Passengers were only being allowed to take a limited number of items on board by hand in a single, ideally transparent, plastic carrier bag.

Items that could be taken on board in hand-carried bags included:
· Pocket-sized wallets and purses, plus contents
· Travel documents essential for the journey
· Prescription medicines and medical items sufficient and essential for the flight, except in liquid form unless verified as authentic
· Spectacles and sunglasses, without cases
· Contact lens holders, without bottles of solution
· Baby food, milk (the contents of each bottle had to be tasted by the accompanying passenger) and sanitary items sufficient and essential for those taking an infant on a flight (nappies, wipes, creams and nappy disposal bags)
· Female sanitary items sufficient and essential for the flight, if unboxed (for example, tampons, pads, towels and wipes)
· Tissues (unboxed) and/or handkerchiefs
· Keys (but no electrical key fobs)

So all I’ll be without is food. And I’ll have to really hope that my checked bag gets there — can you imagine the insanity in the luggage department right now. I can only be happy that my flight wasn’t today! Sorry to all of you who did have to get somewhere today. That can’t feel fair.
