What you can and can’t carry at the moment on your flight
Jeremy Skidmore & CSS
BAA, the airports operator, has clarified the new regulations on hand luggage following widespread confusion among passengers over what they are allowed to carry on to planes.
At the height of the latest security alert, only essential documents, carried in a transparent plastic bag, were allowed, but from last Monday the Government relaxed the rules to permit electronic items, including laptops, mobile phones and media players. Passengers can also buy items at the airside shops once they have passed through security checks, and take them on board, although there are restrictions for passengers to the US. Here is a guide to the latest regulations:

Running for cover in all the travel chaos
Caught up in the travel confusion? Rupert Jones sets out what the insurance covers, who to contact, and spells out what the airlines are saying

Saturday August 12, 2006
The Guardian
Thousands of people due to set off on holiday this weekend will be anxiously reviewing their travel plans in the wake of the chaos at airports sparked by the alleged plot to blow up passenger jets.
With hundreds of flights axed, and schedules in disarray, some would-be holidaymakers will be wondering whether they - and their luggage - will reach their destination on time. Some will probably feel that getting on to a plane is just about the last thing they want to do, but will have forked out hundreds of pounds for accommodation and car hire.

The study, in the British Medical Journal, says unsuspecting patients are being subjected to full searches and interrogation and need to be warned that they may attract the unwanted attentions of security officers.
One 46 year-old patient from Birmingham, who had been given radio-isotope treatment for an overactive thyroid, six weeks before, set off alarms at Orlando airport, Florida at the start of his holiday.

Access to air travel for disabled people - Research Report published
The Department for Transport has today published the findings of a research project aimed at assessing how well the UK aviation industry is complying with the recommendations contained in the Department\'s voluntary Code of Practice Access to Air Travel for Disabled People.
The study, carried out on behalf of the Department by the Transport Research Laboratory, shows that:
* the industry needs further encouragement to follow those parts of the Code that are already covered by Part 3 of the Disability Discrimination Act;
* there should be increased training for travel and booking agency and airline staff;
* procedures to increase pre-booking assistance, and provision of information in alternative formats, need to be promoted further;
* consistent policies need to be developed on the carriage of disabled people and on seating allocation; airlines and their handling agent staff should have the knowledge to assess suitable seating allocation for particular needs.

Just what can happen when you fall ill on board a plane
By Claire Coleman
Hundreds of thousands of people will be flying off on their summer holidays in the next few weeks. For most, the greatest worry will be flight delays and, perhaps, lost luggage.
There is always the fear, of course, of succumbing to some ghastly travellers\' bug once you reach your destination. But we don\'t expect to be struck down on the flight itself.

Too many passengers are being denied compensation. Miles Brignall reports
Saturday July 29, 2006
Guardian
Complaints about airlines jumped 50% last year - but there is evidence that the consumer bodies charged with protecting passenger rights in the UK are failing to take on an industry which too often refuses to pay up.
