Flew today to Washington, DC and witnessed what I suppose will be a new era in travel. Water bottles, medications, baby formula, wine and even my tripod were not permitted past the security section of the Montreal airport! On the other side, the only means of hydration were 2 water fountains which were still working... Starbucks, Burger King, and the 2 other restos on the US destinations side had posted signs that they could no longer offer beverages due to the new rules at the airport.
Weird thing was, I arrived in Detroit for my connection, glorious liquids were available everywhere, but had to be consumed before boarding. Gels of all types and flavours were being sold... PENS (I had to dump my pen in Montreal - it contains liquid!)...
I am hoping this all dies down by Monday for the return flight... but I doubt it.
Anyone else get this surprise this morning?
