Thanks to the latest failed terrorist attack, it may be best for you to leave as many electronics at home as possible.

While there is no doubt we love gadgets around here, with the increase in travel regulations due to the failed terrorist attack on Christmas Day by Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab are making us all rethink what we take on a flight with us.

While the rules for travel inside the United States seem unchanged at this time, the amount of security checking at the security checkpoints is definitely up.  The amount of electronics you have with you is going to definitely increase that time even more, and putting gadgets in your checked luggage is never desirable.

Those of you going on international trips will be fine leaving the United States, but your return trip will be a different matter all together.  While the Transportation Security Authority (TSA) has yet to make a formal announcement, some international airlines have posted comments on their sites.  This one come from Air Canada:

New rules imposed by the U.S. Transportation Security Administration also limit on-board activities by customers and crew in U.S. airspace that may adversely impact on-board service. Among other things, during the final hour of flight customers must remain seated, will not be allowed to access carry-on baggage, or have personal belongings or other items on their laps.

There is also a statement from British Airways you can read, but it says essentially the same thing.

If you are traveling outside of the U.S. any time in the near future, you need plan ahead for your return trip, or if you are a resident of another country coming to the United States, plan for your arrival.

Hopefully these rules will get more formalized soon, and perhaps they won’t sound quite so scary, but for now you need to reduce how much you are carrying with you period.
