Re: [Killietalk] hand carrying fish on airlines?
The no-liquids rules preclude carrying them on as hand luggage. I have
had no problems in checked baggage.
I have a small styro with fitted cardboard box that fits inside my
checked suitcase. Using breather bags I can get a LOT of fish in it. I
use a larger (liner breather) bag as secondary protection inside the
styro, and I tape the lid on the styro. I tape the breather bags to
sheets of cardboard or plastic canvas, so they can be flatter (I HATE
golf-ball style breathers) and still not move around too much. Checking
this through has worked on flights for Convention, WCW, WAKO and a trip
to Singapore, all since the tougher rules came into effect.
Looking forward to seeing you in Portland,
