Nice checker for what can and cannot officially be brought through security.
My TSA - Home Airport
You may want to print out their policy for under-educated agents.

The final decision rests with the TSA officer on whether an item is allowed through the checkpoint.

Chaim Naeh says 3.07 oz.
Chofetz Chaim is 3.8 oz.

Maybe TSA compromised between them?

A few weeks ago, I bought some nice new (kosher!) toothpaste in Crown Heights. Then when I got to EWR, the TSA guy pulled it out of my bag and said it's too big! I said I will open it right here and squeeze out the excess 2 ounces into the trash. He said I could go back outside and do that if I wanted to but then, obviously, I would have to go through security all over again.

Did I hashtag right?

I had a 5 ounce gel deodorant that had much less than half left and TSA said I can't bring it through because the container was more than 3oz.

Pretty sure that is e correct info since u can't take a 16 ounce soda which only has 3 in it. The package has to be sealed and less than 3 ounces.

You mean a two and a half year old can of soda? This is the liquids thread.

Uhm he wants to know if the kid is young enough for security to allow him to bring liquids. So yes this is the correct thread.

I just brought water through security in ORD with a 2.5 year old
Life isn't about checking the boxes. Nobody cares.

liquids on jet blue
« Reply #59 on: December 01, 2014, 01:01:37 PM »
it seems you have to put them in a clear plastic bag (i know this isnt specific to jet blue)
is that a total of 3.4 ounces or each item needs to be less than 3.4 ounces?
also, what do spray deodorant users do if they arent checking a bag?
