US Airways - December 2014 - (Page 252)
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 aboard aircraft.
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. Recreational oxygen canisters are
also prohibited in checked and carry-on luggage.
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 United States and to and from
Europe. 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
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 door is closed on departure 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.
