'Plot to blow up planes' foiled...


Looks like it's RIP hand luggage.

A terrorist plot to blow up planes in mid-flight from the UK to the US has been disrupted, Scotland Yard has said. It is thought the plan was to detonate explosive devices smuggled on aircraft in hand luggage. Police have arrested about 18 people in the London area after an anti-terrorist operation lasting several months.

The Department for Transport set out the details of the security measures at UK airports: Passengers will not be allowed to take any hand luggage on to any flights in the UK, the department said. Only the barest essentials - including passports and wallets - will be allowed to be carried on board in transparent plastic bags.

    Fortunately we were able to take a few ladies things on the flight from NY to LHR, because... im a lady you know.

    Anyway the girl at JFK should have worked at KFC as she said NO medication - quite a quandry for a ventolin inhaler and sleeping tabs we thinks. Anyway threw a few excess tabs in the checked bag and smuggled gaviscon and ibuprofen through security (in my bag no less) what a laugh - contradict the website and fuck off freqent flyers... no longer a lady.
