Tampa Bay’s Morning Krewe

Weekdays 5:30AM - 10:00AM

According to TSA:

“The issue concerning Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge-themed soda bottles has recently been brought to our attention by the general public, as these items could reasonably be seen by some as replica hand grenades. We appreciate the concerns being raised because replica explosives are not permitted in either carry-on or checked bags. We have completed our review, and instructed our officers to treat these as an over-sized liquid.”

“Because these bottles contain liquids larger than 3.4 ounces, they should be put in checked baggage or emptied to be brought on as carry-on items,” it continued. “TSA officers will maintain the discretion to prohibit any item through the screening checkpoint if they believe it poses a security threat.”

After further review, TSA has changed their minds. The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) will officially allow the “thermal detonator”-shaped Coca-Cola bottles to be carried in checked luggage and carry-on bags in the high skies, overturning an earlier ban on traveling with the must-have memento.
