With the three-ounce rule in effect for all air travelers, a mini-industry has sprung up in travel-sized bottles for all your toiletries, creams, and beauty goodies. But not everyone is so keen on the rules, especially since many airlines are now charging for checked baggage, meaning that people feel forced to carry everything in their on-board luggage.
Recently, quite a few people I know have sneaked larger items past security, despite knowing better and having misgivings. While the fact that they even got through is worrying, I'm also wondering whether more people are going to violate the three-ounce rule hoping to bring gifts and other items through. What about you? Is the three-ounce rule inviolate, or the kind of thing you don't mind breaking once in a while?
