Carry On Confusion: Is Peanut Butter Welcome Aboard In Dubai?
You've already--quite rightly--complained about how confused you are about what you can take on a plane in domestic US flights (and BTW, we're still confused about the gummy bears). Well, just to add a bit more confusion to the mix, any flights going through popular hub Dubai are now about to be subject to new carry-on rules too.
Until now, Dubai International Airport has been free of the kinds of restrictions that's made us gobble down our gummy bears before the security check. From June 17, anyway visiting or transiting in Dubai will be restricted in the amounts and kinds of liquids, aerosols and gels they'll be able to carry on.
The basic rules sound familiar: less than 100mL of anything soggy, in individual containers inside a Ziploc bag, maximum 20cm by 20cm. But just like nearly everywhere else, they're pretty vague about exactly what's banned, and we don't know their opinion on peanut butter, either.
