  1. I saw some big banners in Yichang airport yesterday, but noone said anything, even if people had the “usual” amount of bags and cases.

    What will happen if any gets “caught” for the crime ?

    Please post a comment here if you experience this, guys and girls !

  2. I will take flight to Beijing next Monday. Let me see what happens when I pass those machines.

  3. This is really useful information. My experience is that airlines tighten up and then find that actually operating it is really difficult and then it goes back to the original position. However Jian what happened to you on the trip to Beijing?

  4. I am in Beijing right now and I didn’t see any difference this trip. Maybe it only check outbound passengers in Beijing Airport. They also require passengers to check-in 1 hour before departure – instead of the 30 minutes rule before.
