    I find that my biggest challenge when travelling via aircraft is the transition between airport and aircraft if I have to walk outside. The blustery winds are desperate to put my kilt up! I have solved this problem by taking my jacket or jumper (with a full zip) and tying the arms in a knot where my belt buckled would be and letting the jacket simply hang from my hips down. That often keeps the back of the kilt down and my sporran keeps the front down. So far, so good!

    There is no way to close an account, but if you don't check in for a period of time, it goes inactive and eventually locks.

    Goodbye if that's your choice.

    If anyone is travelling through Belfast International Airport, please allow an extra 30 to 60 minutes. A new security firm has taken over and they are not very efficient and wearing a kilt will test their coping skills to the limit. I had to be scanned and patted down between three different staff and the lass on the scanner decided my bag of toiletries posed a grave threat to civilisation and had to test them. Consequently people are queuing out of the door and it has made the local news.

    Just how fast does your "rapidly disintegrating tissue" disappear? OR, do you use the European brand that can substitute for shipping container siding?

    Kidding aside, thank you for the helpful information.

    There was a certain Scottish lord (now deceased) who would come over to the US at least once a year to visit with the members of the clan society in North America. (Actually, the society's name contains North America, but the rules were changed so anyone from any continent can join as long as they meet the other requirements.) Now this particular Scottish clan chief preferred to go "commando." In addition, he had a prosthetic leg. In order to go through a wand inspection, the leg had to be removed. Very time consuming. So he chose the easier route, manual inspection by a gentleman. He loved telling people that he did not know that a black man could turn so many shades of red!

    Urban myth, I suspect. Sad that you would further it on this forum, Iowish.

    Apologies for the late reply. I think all countries have the same regulations, but in Europe anyway all liquids have to be in a clear transparent sealed bag and no single container can be more than 100 ml. These may be randomly or deliberately tested to see that your liquids are legitimate products and not nerve agents or explosives or something else nasty.
    Belfast International Airport remains appalling with security queues going outside the terminal building on occasion.

    Hardly seems like a hanging offense.

    2nd time traveling to EU kilted, I didn't think I'd be able to in winter, but reading an Alaskan guys kilt recommendation, it seemed having warm upper/core clothes could allow for kilt wearing~

    No hitches through airport security, and I have buckles and silver kilt pin sewed in

    In Korea I had a full body scan and a guy at a computer was laughing,, maybe at me?
