men-u products are compliant with
TSA carry on luggage liquids regulations!
TSA Flight Rules, since 2009: You can carry on liquids up to 3.4 oz. / 100ml
here for the official TSA web site with the 3.4 oz / 100ml liquid carry on rules
TSA article clarifies that as of 2009, liquids up to 3.4 oz
are allowed to be carried on all USA planes and how the TSA 3.4 oz / 3.0 oz. liquid policy
Q: What gives? I thought
the maximum allowed size was 3 oz.
the early days of liquid carry-on regulations and restrictions, there
was a lot of confusion. But now, the TSA has clarified that 3.4 oz.
(100ml), the size of men-u products, is allowed in your carry on
worldwide standard for personal care packaging is 100ml. 100ml =
The TSA first banned all liquids and then later allowed small liquids
to be carried onto USA flights.
Communicating the new rule allowing liquid products under a certain
size happend virtually over night. It was a massive
logistics (installing signs in all air ports) and
education (web site, press releases, training TSA field people
etc) effort. In their haste, the TSA simply used 3 oz as a simple way
to communicate the restriction quickly. (The 3-1-1 slogan).
Frankly, we think they underestimated the intelligence of
both the flying public and their own TSA employees and declared
a 3.0 oz
limit for simplicity (and maybe because they thought we were all
idiots?). But once the TSA realized the
3.0 oz restriction was a mistake, they later
changed the rules to allow
liquids up to 3.4 oz.
Here is a quote from the TSA explaining why liquids up to 3.4 oz are now
scoop. If the U.S. would have switched to the metrics system in the
70s, this wouldn't be an issue. How many of you out there had
to learn the metric system in school only to never use it…
When TSA lifted the total liquid ban and implemented the 3-1-1 program,
the permissible amount of liquids, aerosols and gels was 3oz. Press
releases went out, WebPages were updated, and signs were printed and
shipped out nationwide to 457 airports.
When TSA rolled out 3-1-1, the European Union was not on board yet.
When the EU decided to lift the ban and allow liquids to travel, the
amount permitted was 100ml. Well, as those of you who like me had to
learn metric conversion in grade school, you might remember that 100ml
3.4oz. not 3 oz. In order to align with the EU, we decided to allow
liquids in containers up to 3.4oz. We also decided to keep our signage
the same to maintain consistency. (Besides, 3.4-1-1 just
doesn't have the same ring to it.)
From a marketing perspective, 3 ounces was easier to remember than 3.4.
For the European Union, 100 milliliters was easier to remember than 89.
So, behind the scenes, we’ve been allowing up to 3.4 ounces,
but it hasn't been reflected on the web or in signage.
We've read your concerns here on the blog, so from now on,
we'll use 3.4 on the blog when talking about liquid limits,
and also make changes (as soon as possible) to the TSA web site. I
worked with Lynn on this and she has crafted a new response for the
contact center to use when communicating with the public. We are also
going to send a message to the workforce as a reminder.
Some people have asked why we don't convert the net weight of
the toothpaste to volume since they are different. Good question. The
3.4 container/volume rule was created to make it simple and streamlined
for both passengers and our officers. As you could imagine, taking
weight into consideration would be a wrench in the spokes.
I'm sure the public doesn't want our officers using
scales or conversion charts, etc.
I hope this has helped you better understand the 3.0/3.4 oz. conundrum." (Editor's note: we
previously had a link to this article, but the TSA has re-done their website and this
link is no longer available.)
