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 Web site you can view security checkpoint wait times and other useful information. You can also check the US Airways Web site 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. 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. Other portable electronic devices may be used except at taxi, takeoff, and landing, when they must be turned off and properly stowed. 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 phones may be used while the aircraft is parked at the gate, and after landing while taxiing to the gate, as advised by the ﬂight crew. They must be turned off and stowed at all other times. Bluetooth or wireless devices are not permitted for use in ﬂight. Gogo® Inﬂight Internet is available on Airbus A321 aircraft.
