sleep aids and restraint systems

Children often have trouble sleeping on airplanes, but there are travel accessories that help, like hammocks and boxes that extend the seat.

However, accessories that convert the seats into beds are banned by some airlines such as Qantas and British Airways.

According to the Qantas websiteThe ban includes: “Onboard travel accessories and devices that attach to aircraft seats, are tucked between seats, or otherwise block access to seat rows or aisles.

“Examples of prohibited onboard accessories include, but are not limited to, inflatable cubes, ‘bed boxes’ and ‘leg hammocks.'”

British Airways stated: “Prohibited devices include, but are not limited to, child seat extenders, infant hammocks on laps, inflatable footrests and devices that attach to the seat to restrict movement or support the legs (bed boxes).”

Nerf guns, water guns, toy guns

Any toy that imitates weapons is prohibited – even if it is unlikely to cause injury.

They can also be flagged at security checks, especially if they go through X-ray machines.

Any toy that might resemble a gun should be placed in the hold, as the government recommends that “imitation explosive devices (including replica or model guns)” be banned.

snacks

Earlier this year, easyJet announced that would be the case to ban the sale of all nuts on their flights.

And to create a nut-free environment, they would also prevent passengers from bringing their own on board.

Most countries have strict rules on the foods you are allowed to bring into their borders to protect the local environment.

So if you bring fruit or nuts on board, they should be eaten or discarded during the flight to avoid problems on landing.

Souvenirs like snow globes

Snow globes are harmless souvenirs, but don’t try to take them on a flight.

It’s all because it’s impossible for airport security to tell how much liquid is in them.
