Will be on the Newark - Bonaire Continental flight this saturday night. Does anyone have any comments about what you are allowed to carry on in the way of sandwiches ,food items, etc. The Continental and TSA web sites tell you what you cannot bring. Not that we will be eating a lot between midnight and 5 am. Just do not want to bring something and then have to throw it away at the security check. Thanks..

We always bring empty water bottles with their caps off when we go through security and then fill them on the other side. Has not been a problem except for the few weeks that you could not bring any liquids on the airplane. Alternative is to buy water and food on the secure side and bring them on the airplane.

I fly through Newark all the time on business: food OK (i would stay away from puddings and other creamy stuff that might seem like gel/cream). Empty water bottles OK.

Carl, You should have no problem taking sandwiches through security. We took the flight to Newark in March and we are going back the first week of June. When we got to the airport around 10pm we were sure glad we ate before we got there as there was nothing open! All of the food stands and restaurants looked like they had been closed for hours. The bookstore that sold snacks and water was the only thing open. Have a great trip!

Carl..Good advice from Karen for this midnight flight. Hit your favorite neighborhood Italian restaurant for dinner at 7:00PM & you should be fine. Board the plane, have a glass of red wine & try to sleep

We do the Continental flight from Houston. We get to Houston way early, have dinner with our daughter, put our truck in car park/storage, catch their bus to the airport and are ready to go by 9pm. That gets us to the airport so we are some of the first in line but at that time of the night there is not many people in the airport anyway. As to the food question, we take snacks with us but not liquids. In Houston there is usually one or two places open that we can get water or sodas on the secure side. All liquids in your carry on need to be the small 3 oz size and in a plastic bag so that the bottles can be seen. Have a good time on Bonaire.

Thanks for all the tips. Only 15 more hours! Will find a place and have dinner. Take a few snacks for the flight. Everything is packed - (hopefully everything is in a bag somewhere). Would think that as this is trip # 6 for Bonaire - the packing part would be routine.

By the way, searching for flights to Bonaire last weeks of October, 1st week November, the Saturday night flight cost from Newark to Bonaire is only $542.20 plus taxes. It's one of the better prices I've seen.
