london!!!! no way man-i hate that place there-the airport.i did that i think 2 trips back-never again.even then it suked! i go through amsterdam.
oh yes i understand about the gels and all that.oh i also found out they wont let you bring on board even SOLID DEODORANT!
so my plan hehe-i am making a small package to send to my driver in kenya.
20bucks should cover the postage.
then i will buy stuff there as needed or as i go along.
but i will call northwest anyway
thx, d

I thought it was just the gel deordorant that you couldn't bring on. I actually had solid deordorant in my carry on and had no problems coming home from Tanzania last week.

I too, have always carried onboard my photo equip. including the older Canon 500mm f4.5 L lens with no problems.

If you are traveling through Heathrow now, though, it will be more difficult or impossible to carry onboard your big glass with the restriction to one carry on of laptop briefcase size.

So, not wanting to risk checking my camera gear, when I go to Zambia the end of Sept. I am taking my 24-105 and 300 mm IS L lenses plus the 1.4 converter on board. A bit of a compromise, but relatively compact and I know it will be with me when I arrive at my dest. My clothes, other stuff, I do not care about. Just don't want the anxiety of whether or not the gear makes it.
