US Airways - December 2013 - (Page 130)
Security US Airways and the nation's
airports are working together with the U.S.
Department of Homeland Security, the TSA,
and other federal and local law enforcement
agencies to implement security measures to
keep all passengers and crewmembers safe.
Be aware of the activities around you. Any
suspicious activity should be immediately
reported to an airline representative or law
Permitted and Prohibited Items and
Security Wait Times The TSA has listed
items that may be taken through the security
checkpoint. If you are unsure about a particular item, see a complete list of permitted and
prohibited items at tsa.gov. On the TSA website
you can view security checkpoint wait times and
other useful information. You can also check
the US Airways website at usairways.com for
security-related travel tips.
Hazardous Materials Many common
items used in the home or workplace might
seem harmless. However, when transported by
air they can be dangerous and are prohibited.
During flight, variations in temperature and
pressure can cause items to leak, generate
toxic fumes, or even start a fire. Federal law
prohibits the carriage of hazardous materials
Explosives, compressed gases, flammable
liquids and solids, oxidizers, poisons, corrosives,
and radioactive material are hazardous and
prohibited. Some examples include paints, lighter
fluids, fireworks, tear gas, oxygen bottles, and
pepper spray. If you are unsure whether the item
you want to pack in your luggage is hazardous,
please contact US Airways at 800-428-4322.
Electronic Equipment Please do not
use portable televisions, radio transmitters, or
remote control toys inside the aircraft.
Smaller handheld portable electronic devices
may be used in "airplane mode" during all phases
of flight within the 50 United States. Larger electronic devices such as full-size laptops or video
players must be turned off and properly stowed
during taxi, takeoff, and landing.
As a courtesy to our customers, we request
that all passengers use headsets for any audible
portable electronic devices. Please also be
considerate of other passengers' sensitivities
and the proximity of minors when choosing your
personal video entertainment.
In addition, cellular phone calls may be made
prior to departure, while the aircraft is parked at
the gate, and after landing while taxiing to the
gate, or as advised by the flight crew. Cellular
phones may not be used to place or receive calls
once the aircraft begins moving or during flight.
Phones may be used in "airplane mode" provided
voice and data services are turned off during all
phases of flight. Bluetooth or wireless devices are
also permitted for use during all phases of flight.
Gogo® Inflight Internet is available on select
aircraft. Look for a card with information in your
seat-back pocket and listen for your flight attendant to announce when you've reached 10,000
feet and can go online.
