Travellers should always follow the rules set by the airport. Why? This is for the safety of everyone, from the pilot to the crew and the travellers themselves. Sometimes, it might seem too strict. But isn't being strict okay if it means that you and your family will be safe from harm?
Thankfully, we have dedicated security staff checking each and every belonging in the airport. But sometimes, their human eyes are not enough to detect the worst items. Luckily, we have technology such as X-ray machines to see through the disguise put by some questionable travellers. How many banned items can you guess?
If you take the first look, it might seem like there is nothing wrong about the bag. It seems completely normal.
But when you look closely, thanks to the X-ray machine, there is a pocket knife located at the site. Sorry, but that is apparently not allowed inside.
I actually found this a bit difficult to decipher. I keep looking for sharp objects, but there isn't anything sharp to be found. Is the bag safe?
Upon closer inspection, the bag actually contained a pretty large pot of body cream. That sounds safe, but having more than 100ml of that is not allowed in the airport.
Okay, this one has a lot of items inside that was detected by the X-ray machine. But is there anything wrong with the bag?
Yup, this bag actually has a gun inside. The sneaky thing is that a part of the weapon is covered, so you can only see the handle.
Alright, I think that the middle item might be a bigger box of cream or powder. Or is it something else?
Sorry guys but aerosol cans used for your hair are not allowed in airports and airplanes. Just buy a new hairspray if you really need them.
If you haven't guessed what is banned in this bag, then I suggest you buy some new glasses or have your eyes checked.
