Flying AJ Baltimore-Mobay-Bonaire 10/17. No one at AJ could tell us if regs, BC, computers were allowed on carry-on (that after talking to 6 people). Anyone with recent experience? I'm concerned because I'm an amputee and need to us a weight itegrated BC so I usually carry it on since I don't think anyone rents them, and we all know luggage goes missing sometimes. Please help.

Yes, on regs, BCDs and computers. As long as you can fit it within the size limitations for carry-ons.

Can anyone tell me if Air Jamiaca will allow dive knives, finger nail clippers etc in checked bags?

Not having done any diving for over 10 years Do they still have CO2 cartridges attatched to the BC's to inflate them-- and if so-- do they need to be taken off and packed in checked luggage?

This FAA webpage explains what is /isn't allowed

A filled compressed air tank including spare air would be prohibited on the plane. If the tank is empty and not under any pressure that is a different story.

Important Consideration: Scuba Cylincers, empty naturally, have been always a grey item.. Technically they have always been allowed unpressurized in check baggage, but the authority for their transport comes close, if not directly under, the definition of air cargo. One of the new regs is that air cargo no longer travels on passanger planes. When traveling to bonaire or other dive destination travelrs should remember that there are also International regulations that also apply. Historically FAA has been much more liberal. I do not pretend to understand them all. The best bet is to keep an up to date exchange with your travel agent/air line as to what their interpretation is. I know a some of european bcs have integrated inflation bottles, but I would really think twice oif traveling with a spare air. Does your need offeset the hassale???

Sharp pointy objects are now being allowed in checked baggage on AA flights out of Bonaire, and have been for about two weeks (discovered this when I talked to the baggage clearance person at the airport last Sunday for my short trip to San Juan).
