We've heard of dive knives being confiscated at Flamingo prior to boarding AJ. The knives were in checked baggage. Any sharps are being taken out of baggage, including the multi tools we all carry to repair equipment. Anyone have any experience with this? This means we stand to lose alot of equipment in checked baggage. Can this be right?

We just flew back from Bonaire last Sunday on American Eagle. YES, our dive knife was confiscated (as well as nail clippers & a metal nail file). Another passenger on our plane had their repair tool kit confiscated as well (the whole kit, not just the screwdrivers). These items were inside our checked luggage. Personnel at Flamingo airport opened every single suitcase and carryon and searched them (but they ignored my purse for some reason).

We took AJ out of Bonaire on Sat. Sept. 15. They also slapped an address label on our bag of knives & tools. Ana C, if you get yours back, let me know. I will do the same for you. I REALLY don't expect to see these items again, but one can hope...
