Before 9/11 you could carry almost anything on an airplane. Obviously weapons and hazardous chemicals were forbidden, but heck, it wasn’t long ago you could smoke while flying. These days the list of banned items is growing larger and larger and keeping track of it all is confusing. Some items are okay in the hold but not in the cabin, while others are banned altogether. Click through 12 surprising things not allowed on planes today and be prepared to leave that Disney snow globe behind.

Don’t try to board an airplane wearing a shirt that screams profanities. Flight attendants actually make the call on whether your airplane attire is acceptable or not, so don’t push the limits here. We recommend that you skip a controversial tee while traveling. If you wouldn’t go to dinner at your mother’s house wearing it, don’t try to fly in it.
