that might not be a good thing, as they can "request" you to step through...that door.I had 2 laptops, the Mavic Pro, 3 fully charged batteries, etc etc etc, and the idiots at TSA gave me a hand job while trying to figure out 3 bananas in my carry on.
I reamed them a new one asking them how many bananas have taken down an aircraft vs how many Lithium Ion batteries have caught fire in flight causing a problem.
P.R. is considered a domestic flight, keep everything in your carry on, if they give you crap give it right back to them
I am Pre check, TWIC, Part 61, Part 107, CDL Haz Mat, CCW, etc etc etc
Agree with taking everything on as “carry on” which I always do, no problems so far, keep everything in your carry on, if they give you crap give it right back to them
living in ca, they do take importing any kind of plant (and mammal and/or parts) as a problem. bug, worms, heck even hitchhiking crabs from china. (not editable, even chinese will not eat them.), they dig holes in levees. look at the rabbit problem in the land down under.There is actually a banana disease currently spreading worldwide. Not a laughing matter.
remember you are talking about a goverment agancy.I heard that one. That was dumb of customs. Just confiscate it if it was really a concern and call it a day.
She probably tried the "if they give you crap give it right back to them" method... hahaharemember you are talking about a goverment agancy.
they tend to not hire the best, then some of the regs established by congress.
at least we are safe right now with the fed shut down.
