This afternoon, talking about what we have to take to New York, we have wondered if a recorder and a microphone would let us on the plane. In principle we think that like any electrical device there would be no problem, but with how restrictive they are getting on the issue of flights to the US We weren't quite sure. After consulting with a couple of coworkers we have called AENA to ask. In AENA we have been told that we had to talk to the airline, which I thought was stupid since once the security checkpoint was passed at the airport, they no longer hit you.
Anyway, we have called the Delta Airlines information telephone number that Aena has given us to get out of doubt. First of all, I have to say that I would swear that the person who answered us on the phone was drunk because he spoke in that way that only the choppers know how to speak. Well, the ethyl man has told us that we could upload the recorder and microphone without any problem. (We will have to trust).
However, it has given me to look at Aena's website for the list of restricted hand items and I have really hallucinated. Did you know that you cannot climb a catapult on a plane? And I thought: How can you be so absurd giving these specifications? But then I have imagined the typical conversation at the airport security checkpoint:
Policeman: Sir, this catapult that you carry in your backpack cannot get you on the plane.
Passenger: How not? In the safety regulations for hand luggage did not prohibit it.
Do not you believe it? Well then take a look at the full list.
