I've been confused on just what the deal is with breakables in carry-ons these days. I don't risk it anymore, but I wanted to know for sure.
After I went through security when leaving PV on December 8th, I asked the guy who was supervising the entire security operation whether we can have them or not. He kindly said, "no, they aren't allowed".
So, like a little kid.....just to see how serious they are about it I asked, "If someone doesn't know the rule and they have them in their carry-on....they still have to leave them here?"... he shook his head yes, and made a sad face :-(
So there you have it....the official policy at the PV airport when departing, is they aren't allowed in carry-ons. I still think some are getting through, and wonder how hard they focus on ceramics....but I didn't ask.
