European Parliament Against On-board Liquid Restrictions

he European Parliament called on the European Commission to review urgently the legislation restricting the amount of liquid passengers can carry onboard aircraft.

According to the decision this regulation causes too much inconvenience to passengers comparing to the real safety it brings.  The liquid restriction was introduced early 2007 after an attempt to burn down a plane using high concentration alcohol in 2 l bottles.  The new restriction says liquid can be taken on board only in 100 ml bottles that are packed in a reopenable closed transparent plastic bag and the maximum number of 100 ml bottles per passenger is 10 (1 l alltogether).

The problem is that when somebody travels – especially children and old people suffer – it is hard to stand in a queue for example betwen security and boarding without drinking. Or if a transit passenger has to sit for hours and for any reason he or she cannot drink those soft drinks sold in the airport bars (or does not have money at hand).

    Nothing seems to be easier than seeing someone whom you can help but not helping.
    I suggest we start giving it a try. Give love to the ones that need it.
    God will appreciate it.
