If you will be flying back into the United States any time in the immediate future, you'd do well to bring plenty of reading material with you on the flight. Physical books and magazines, not just stuff loaded up on your Kindle or laptop. Thanks to a botched terrorist attack the TSA has apparently implemented new and irritating safety guidelines. Numerous reports (via Gizmodo) state that no electronics are currently allowed on international flights. Not your cell phone, or your laptop, or even your MP3 player. In addition, flyers will be unable to get up at all during the last hour of the flight. Not even to pee. The TSA has not commented officially on any of these rules. It is possible that this is just a short-term, momentary over-reaction to yesterday's events. Or it's possible that flying is about to suck even harder for the foreseeable future. Fortunately the new rules only seem to extend to inbound international flights. We'll keep you updated as the story develops.
