Good to know…what else is on the list?
The short week is coming to an end and the long Holiday weekend is approaching. While a lot of people may be driving to their destinations for their Thanksgiving meal, a lot of people will also be flying in the next 48 hours SO TSA put out a list of travel tips revolving around Thanksgiving foods you can and can’t carry on an airplane.
Whether you are bringing something to the table or you are bringing some leftovers home, the basic rule to remember is any solid foods are okay but anything liquidy has to go in your checked luggage.
Foods you ARE allowed to carry on: pies, cakes, stuffing, rolls, vegetables, casseroles, turkey (even a full, uncarved Thanksgiving bird is acceptable. Even a frozen turkey!)
Foods you CANNOT carry on: gravy, cranberry sauce, wine, eggnog, mashed potatoes, jam/jelly
Here are 3 more quick thanksgiving tips from the TSA:
- Get to the airport early. At least two hours before a domestic flight
- Carving knives have to go in checked luggage, obviously. Even the electric kind
- If you’re not sure about something, just download the “MyTSA” app. There’s a feature called “Can I Bring” that lets you check if something is allowed or not
