I will be writing down my reflections on how to pack photographic gear that has to be checked. There are many paths to go down, but my gut reaction is to use a Pelican case for all photographic equipment, packed inside of a nondescript duffle bag. Here is some information from the TSA in the USA:
Media have also reported that laptops, cell phones and electronic items are no longer allowed.Â Is that true?
No. TSA continues to allow laptop computers, cell phones and other electronic items.
What can people expect at the checkpoints?
Passengers may experience longer lines at airports and should plan to arrive early. Check with your specific airline and airport before flight departure time to determine how much time is needed for your flight. Passengers should pack their patience and ensure that that they do not bring any liquids to the security checkpoint in carry-on luggage. These items are no longer permitted on board the aircraft. To expedite the process, avoid having clutter in your bags and minimize the number carry-on items.
More on my thoughts later.
