Just got a LOVELY E-mail from KLM and its gotten me VERY angry... These are the rules for liquids in your hand luggage: 1. You can only bring on liquids and gels in containers of no more than 100 millilitres. 2. These containers must be carried in a transparent plastic bag. 3. There is a limit of one transparent plastic bag per person. 4. The volume of the transparent plastic bag may not be greater than 1 litre. 5. The transparent plastic bag must be re-sealable. You may bring a suitable plastic bag from home. During the introductory period, free transparent plastic bags will also be given out at all concerned airports. There are two exceptions to the above rules: * baby food needed during the flight; * medicines needed during the flight. Purchases in duty free at the airport: * If your trip includes a transfer in a European Union country (including French overseas territories), the retailer must place your purchases in a bag. This will be sealed and must remain so until the end of your trip. This bag must be accompanied by a proof of purchase that will be checked when you transfer at the screening inspection point. * In Paris, if you are transferring between Paris-Charles de Gaulle and Paris-Orly airports, you are authorized to carry these duty free articles in the cabin of the following flight only if you retain your bag sealed, accompanied by the corresponding proof of purchase. * If your purchase occurred in an airport located outside the European Union, and you are transferring to a European Union country, you will not be authorized to carry your purchases onto your next flight. They will be taken away from you. NOTE that you cant buy any liquids outside the EU God how i hate this.
