    Something in my purse today caused suspicions when scanned at YYZ today. They searched it, found nothing suscpicious except a plastic knife, one from an AC flight, and they said that's not allowed! I am not mourning the loss of it but that's ridiculous. The flight is full of them, they supply them, one set with every meal, even at the back of the bus. Of course I am fully aware those in J has real cutlery. Even my hair clip is more lethal than a plastic knife!

    They must really have to work hard to find people with the sufficient lack of common sense to qualify for that job.

    Sadly, nothing TSA does surprises me anymore.

    YYZ, so this was CATSA, who, it appears, aspires to be like TSA.

    What were you thinking?

    TSA was helping you; there is no need for a plastic knife as once you board your flight they have plenty of metal knifes served with first class meals. You would have looked so low class using your plastic knife while everyone else has metal ones ;)

    Doesn't CATSA know that you can go to any airside phud court and pick up one of those dangerous plastic knives from any of the "utensils, straws and napkins area"? Or do they make folks eat with their fingers at YYZ? :rolleyes:

    What's more lethal - regular knife or a fork? I had lunch at BOS the other day, and they served their meals with a plastic knife and a metal fork. I should have ordered a steak!

    As this was in YYZ, was it TSA? ;)

    It never ceases to amaze me the things airport security can zero in on...so much for the other miscellaneous items to DO make it through and may be more of a threat than a PLASTIC FORK!

    Oh my...

    :rolleyes:

    I always carry a set of plastic knife, fork and spoon in my carry-on, nice to have when you are in destination and want to eat something in hotel room or on the go and stop at a grocery store, never had any problems through security, but now that I have posted this guess my luck will run out.

    I frequently have plastic cutlery in my purse (although never when I REALLY need it...) I'm surprised it's never been taken away. Then again, I'm frequently surprised to find what's lurking in my purse that the TSA should have taken away! Whoops!
