Khan,
Dayton is one of the easier airports in the country to navigate, isn't a hub airport for anyone (so doesn't usually have long lines at security), and friendly staff. Also has good newstand/bookstore/ restaurant choices past security. I try to fly through there whenever I have business in OH- it's much lower-stress than Cincinnati or Cleveland. You'll do fine.
Best,
WS

As long as it's stored in the appropriate cavity...

Last air trip, we took some "trail mix" along, and no hassles. But that was several months ago, before the latest procedures.

I had travel plans about two weeks after 9/11. I took along a mechanical pencil for "protection". I figured some terrorist would lose an eye.

There were several military personnel on that flight. I was never so glad...

Wear a little lipstick and mascara, Khan, and you'll dazzle the security people and waltz right through the scanner.

I don't do makeup.

It's a step up to wear shoes and a bra.

A sturdy ball point pen is a better poker weapon then a itty bitty keychain knife. And is legal, as is a sturdy walking cane.

Just remember, never take fists and knives to a gun shootin' iron fight.

I would NEVER make friends with or date any of the garbage that currently surrounds me. They are DISGUSTING. Would you be happy if you were surrounded by outsiders who wanted to invade your world? This isn't a rhetorical question. I am asking you for a yes or no answer.
I think your outlook would improve if you left your parent's basement from time to time and got some sunlight. You are much too young to be so bitter..........

I was thinking that perhaps a diet richer in antidepressants might help, but your reply makes more sense. This reminds me of a relative I try to avoid...
