yoyo on the plane

Postby JRyouK » Wed Feb 04, 2009 10:28 am

It probably has been asked before, i am too lazy to find it again.

Is it ok to carry yoyo with me on the plane? or I have to put them in checked bag?

The reason I ask is that, once I flew overseas, I had a few string and yoyo in my carry bag, and I got checked. They kept the strings during the flight (gave me back at the end) because they said the string can be used as weapon (like, tie someone's neck?). But that's international flight, domestic may not be as strict?

I was able to get through fine at Sydney. Although the security people did ask what was round and had spikes on it (referring to my SPYY;s)

Wow, you had string taken off ya? crazy...

In all my travels which have involved planes and yoyos (which is all of them) I've never had a problem with taking them on as carry on.

As you said, you shouldn't have to worry about domestic flights, they're generally a little more relaxed than international.

I flew Perth to Sydney and back again last year.

At the Perth airport they told me they would have to confiscate my strings.

I managed to get them to put the whole yoyo-bag into luggage.

On the way Back, I just packed it away to avoid any fuss.
They did however sweep me for explosive residue at Sydney!!!?????!
