Everyone in the world makes mistakes and while you shouldn’t feel bad, it’s always nice to know ahead of time on what you can and can’t do and since many travellers don’t travel all the time, there are a few things you should know before you hop onto an airplane and of them being, what you can’t bring onto an airplane.

Every day, thousands of travellers bring on simple items that are banned from your carry-on luggage.  Many items you would have never guessed.  Below is a list of the items you can’t carry in your carry-on bags.

3 oz container maximum – If you have any liquids or items in a container, they cannot be in a container that is bigger than 3 ounces.  If it is, you’re going to have to throw it out.  Make sure that you abide by this rule because this is one of the most common items most people carry onto their flight.  If you bring on liquids that are under 3 ounces, make sure that you place them in a ziploc quartsize bag.  Keep in mind that you’re only allowed ONE ziploc type bag.

Knives – I know this sounds obvious but make sure you have no leathermans, pocket knives, etc.  Sometimes people have this as a keychain or simply carry it around as a habit.  Make sure you put this in your checked luggage.

Sharp Objects – If the object is sharp, you’re most likely going to have to put it in your checked in luggage.  Items such as swords, meat clevers, etc, will all have to be checked in because no matter how safe you really are, you can’t be a danger to everyone else on the plane.

Sporting Goods – You won’t be able to bring anything sporting good related onto your flight with your carry-on luggage.  Items such as golf clubs, baseball bats, hockey sticks, pool cues, etc, will not be allowed withyour carry on.  Insead, this can once again, be placed in your checked luggage.

Ammo – If you’re going to be hunting in another state/country, etc, some people make the mistake of trying to bring on the ammo and just checking in their guns.  Make sure you check in your ammo as well because you won’t be able to bring your ammo on regardless.  Even if you don’t have the gun, the TSA still will find it as a threat.

Fireworks – Fireworks are banned completely from the airport, so even the simple things like a sparkler will be banned.  These items won’t be allowed on your carry-on or checked n luggage, so you can simply leave these items at home.  Make sure that you make a note of this one.

These are some of the most common items brought onto planes by passengers that get denied at the terminal.  To save the trouble and hassle, try and refrain from bringing these items in your carry-on.  To find out what other item can and can’t be brought on board, check the TSA’s official website.
