Default Nearly got arrested...

When we flew out to PP I forgot one golden rule...

DON'T carry anything sharp in your hand-luggage!!

What did I have in mine?? A corkscrew!!

My innocent handbag went through the scanner and was promptly confiscated. I had forgotten that my boss had given me a freebie corksccrew from work that would have come in handy in my wine research whilst in PP!

I was given three options - put the corkscrew into our other hand luggage and check it in, post the offending thing to my house or put it in the bin. I chose the latter.

But I could kick myself for being so stupid!

Good to know, though, that the security regulations are so tight.

By the way, I have nothing but praise for Easyjet. I was a bit worried about travelling with them - "If you're late, we don't wait!"

But they lived up to their name - very easy, no hassle and I enjoyed choosing my own seat. Plus, we were on time and the staff were pleasant and friendly.

Hello Belter52

I nearly died then, when I started reading your post!! I thought, "Oh no! How to win friends and influence people!!":lol

It was a pity that we missed each other, though!

Yes, we're back in August - on the 20th. We're flying into Palma with Air Berlin this time, from Stansted.

I'm sure we were there at about 11am as we checked in with Easyjet to Luton at about 10.30am and I bought some perfume for my mum.

Palma Airport always reminds me of some vast futuristic city with this disembodied voice droning on in the background about heaven knows what, and everyone scurrying about!!
It's so big!!

Seems a long tme ago now...

Having drummed it into my family - guess who got nobbled at Security! I'd taken a load of work with me - including my trusty pencil case - but on the way there it was in a suitcase. We had to pay for excess baggage so shuffled things around and the pencil case was in a big beach bag I had for hand luggage on the way back - lights! bells! sirens! men with handguns! - there was a pair of scissors in the pencil case. I was mortified but my family forgave me (when they'd stopped sniggering) and the Security staff were very kind - I guess I didn't fit the terrorist profile.
