Sometimes when we travel, for various reasons, we would like to bring our tripods in our hand carry luggage bags up with us onto the planes.
However there are times when we are stopped by the security and had to double back to check them in instead. That causes lots of inconveniences.
At other times, we get to bring tripods through with no problem!
Just thought we should start compiling a list of the various airports where tripods are not allowed as hand-carry onto the planes, so everyone will be in the know :-)
Airports that do not allow hand carrying of tripods.
1. All airports in Taiwan
2. All airports in Vietnam
3. Paris (CDG), France
4. All airports in Xinjiang, China (all rod objects banned)
5. All airports in USA (spiked feet are not allowed. Some airports allow tripods as hand carry some do not. Depends on interpretation. TSA rules can be found HERE. Article about tripods HERE.)
If you know of any other airports where it's not allowed, pls share with us and we'll build the list up! (we will modify this first post with new info)
