Can you bring a sealed can of soda on a plane?

Default Can you bring a sealed can of soda on a plane?

I know there are restrictions on liquids, like water bottles, toothpaste
tubes, shampoo, etc. What about soda cans? Since it would be a
challenge for most of us to put something into a soda can and then seal
it so that it looked factory-sealed, I'm wondering if this is okay to
bring through security.

Not allowed through security.

You can only take drinks on the plane that you purchase after security.

Thanks. That seems really dumb to me.

No. the restriction is against "liquids" both in the U.S. and other
countries.

So a can filled with "air" (air from city X, as a tourist gimmick) would
be OK to bring on the plane, but a standard 7-up or sprite depending on
your religion would not be OK.

So, a "souvenir" can filled from air from the Paris sewers would be OK,
despite the risk it may contain lots of compressed methane ready to
explode. :-) :-) :-) :-) :-)

Can't wait for them to invent liquid explosives that are injected into
the body. They might ban human bodies through security :-)

As long as you buy the soda in one of the food concession stands after
you pass through the security gates, it is no problem.


At Manchester Airport in the Duty free section shop they have small
bottles of wine for sale, a notice is also on display that states
they are not for consumption aboard the plane!

When I think of the stuff that could be hidden in a 12-oz Coke
can it doesn't seem that dumb to me. Or are you thinking someone
who wanted to couldn't manage to make a Coke can look sealed?

We certainly understand your sentiment. It has been reported that the "ban"
on liquids taken through security may be repealed in 2009. So, stay tuned.
