How To Prepare For Airport Security When Flying With Medications

As many Americans know, when you’re traveling by plane in the United States, you’re required to follow the 3-1-1 rule: “you’re allowed to bring a quart-sized bag of liquids, aerosols, gels, creams and pastes through the checkpoint.

The sign in the stall said to press the button and the plastic would be replaced for my hygienic safety, or some such. When we went back to Chicago this summer, these weird toilets were still there, still freshly wrapping the seat in plastic for your butt.

My question this summer was exactly the same as it was circa 1995…
