Since 9.11.01 all airlines have introduced new security checks. They must ask you some questions by law. British airlines must use specific words for this. Always answer clearly and simply with «yes» or «no» plus a short answer.
Regulations about checked and carry-on baggage are also changed frequently and may be out-of-date by the time you read this. You can check on the Internet or phone your airline. Most airline Web addresses are easy to guess, e.g.
www.united.com is United Airlines.
www.ana.com is All-Nippon Airways.
www.ba.com is British Airways.
