Snow Globes

Carry On Bags: 
Yes (Less than 3.4oz/100 ml allowed)
Checked Bags: 
Yes

Snow globes that appear to contain less than 3.4 ounces of liquid (approximately tennis ball size) can be packed in your carry-on bag ONLY if the entire snow globe, including the base, is able to fit into your one quart-sized, resealable plastic bag. Each passenger can only bring one quart-sized bag with 3.4 oz or smaller containers. Larger snow globes must be packed in checked baggage.


 

The final decision rests with the TSA officer on whether an item is allowed through the checkpoint.
