Millions of Americans will be traveling by air for Thanksgiving this year and the TSA expects to be X-raying a lot of bags containing turkeys, side dishes, and desserts. But while Aunt Rose may be allowed to carry her famous pecan pie onto the plane, Uncle Darryl's cranberry sauce may need to be checked with the rest of the luggage.
You can carry on:
- Baked goods
- Fresh fruit and veggies
- Stuffing, cooked or uncooked, in a bag or box
- Any kind of meat, frozen, uncooked, cooked
You must check:
- Jams, jelly, and preserves
- Cranberry sauce
- Canned fruit or veggies
It is best to double check with the policies of the airline by which you are flying.
