Also for those who are clueless:
You can no longer bring ANY kind of liquid in your carry-on bags at a US airport. This includes water/soda or any kind of drink, lotions, shampoo, nail polish, LIPSTICK (yes for some reason they consider it a liquid) and anything of the sort. Keep ALL of your liquids in your CHECKED baggage and you will be fine.
I would strongly recommend calling your airline the day before to see if there are any DELAYS. Right now because of all the heightened security measures being taken place at airports, flights are experiencing anything from 15 minute delays (best case scenario) to TWO HOUR delays (worst case).
Finally, if you are flying internationally into the USA, you had just be ready to wait in line for 10 hours and bend over for your anal exam, because all flights coming into the US are under EXTREME scrutiny, for the moment.
