Even with a normal bottle cap, this item is still considered a replica and is not allowed in carry-on or checked bags, a tweet from TSA said.


The TSA have officially stated that a GE Coke bottle "is not allowed in carry-on or checked bags".

where is the TSA statement banning these exact items.

I know they replied to a question on twitter saying something along the lines of replica explosives are not allowed, but have they actually stated that the Star Wars Coke bottles are specifically banned?
Yes. See above.

It's been reported in lots of places.

That is just a news article the same as a news article on the DIBB,

You are saying that the TSA have officially stated...

I'm asking where is that statement, I don't mean some news article that some journalist has written, I mean the actual official statement from the TSA.

TSA officers will maintain the discretion to prohibit any item through the screening checkpoint if they believe it poses a security threat

All that says is if a TSA officer believes something to be a security threat it wont be allowed, which is the same for every other single item.

Prior to that statement the AskTSA twitter did declare them banned though, hence why the questions are being asked. Official statement is more helpful now though.

Stu. The news article repeated what the official statement from the TSA said. I repeated it in my post. Here's an image of the tweet from AskTSA (an official TSA twitter account) stating that "this item is still considered a replica and is not allowed in carry-on or checked bags".



I'm not sure what other proof you want? Do you want the TSA to personally hand you a hand-written statement?

Not trying to be argumentative Just all the fake news and things taken out of context, twisted and used as click bait is really annoying and I like to question it. Even if I'm proved wrong on something, I'd rather question something if there is doubt than just follow the herd, so to speak.

What I want to see is an official statement on the official TSA website, not a single twitter reply.

An official statement (linked above) and here below, which I would trust more than something on twitter does not say they are banned.
