What is not allowed in airport anymore since 9/11?

I am goign to be travelling from Boston to Heathrow next week and am wondering about new safety/security measures since 9/11. Is there anything that I should NOT bring or anything that will cause questions/alarms (that previously wouldn't) while going through immigration? I am assuming it is still okay to pack razors, tweezers, etc???

Razors, I'm not so sure about. Scissors are definitely forbidden.
Tweezers are okay, allowable.

This info is based on my JFK-Rome round-trip taken in the past 2 weeks.

Have a Great Trip,

Do you mean airport/airline security or, as stated, immigration?

If you mean the former, most airline websites have a section addressing this or you could call them and ask. Packing questionable items in checked baggage, and not in carry-on, makes the most sense.

Your KY should be fine to carry on.

Bri,
I saw a woman have her scissors taken out of her carry-on by security, but since they weren't huge "surgical scissors", they merely asked her if she'd like to have them put into her checked luggage.

If possible, check with your airline, as I've heard there is some variability, but I can't imagine anything you'd be taking would cause a major kind of commotion that would delay you from catching your flight & having your things with you, in either your checked or carry-on baggage.
Best Wishes,
BC

Alas to all wine lovers--- corkscrews are also on the no no list.

I was flying back from Prague in December to the USA. I had to switch to another plane in Amsterdam. My checked in bag did not make it on the flight from Amsterdam. When I got my bag the next day at my home, the lock was cut off of the bag and they had taken my tweezers and a magnifying glass. The magnifying glass was around 3 x 5 that swung out and had a light. I guess that they took it because it had a battery in it.
