Re: Flying with a laptop #hungary

Dear Patricia:
I'd like to add something to what our great moderator had to say about
traveling with a laptop and being searched- which I agree with 100% and I
have also had the same clothing items set off the machines and result in
being wanded.

You asked if you have to go through security again when changing planes-
only if you leave a secure area- if you have to exit one terminal to enter
another rather than be able to walk to one to the other without leaving the
secure area- yes you will have to go through security again !.Just keep
smiling- because getting frazzled will not do you any good. You may also
have the "privilege" of a second search at the gate as they take random
people as they enter the plane to do second searches. At least on United
they do. Don't be surprised if you have to take your shoes off and put them
through the x-ray machine either. Some airports machines are set more
sensitively than others For example a pen in a pocket and a tea bag in its
"metallic envelope cover" set off the machine in Sacramento for my husband
this week, but did not do so in LAX.. go figure..

Moderator VK: Great advice! Keep smiling--and keep cool. Also, bring along a good book to help you while away the time while you're waiting on line....
