The list of the banned items is interesting as it includes perfume, mascara, lipstick and so on. We are not sure how it affects duty free items like perfume as it is usually more than 100ml and it is sealed. We will be flying to Thailand this weekend and hope to get more answers for this. Thanks for reading and remember the new carry on luggage rules is starting this weekend, 29th June 2019. Carry on luggage is the same as hand carry luggage. Thanks for reading.
