Liquid Hand Luggage


I'll be flying from Madrid tomorrow with Iberia, and I don't have any checked in baggage. My problem is, I have a brand new lotion (190ml) that isn't even unsealed yet. That's the only liquid I have. Is there any way I can carry it on board? Because it makes no sense to buy an extra baggage just for this lotion (I can't throw it, by the way).

I would be very surprised if they let you take it on board....leave it at home and buy something similar airside.

Put it in a smaller 100ml container or else they'll make you dump it at the airport. I don't think they take into account if it's sealed or unsealed, they just care if it's over 100ml in my experience

Decant it into two or more containers each under 100ml and take it on board in those in a plastic bag.

If you want to put the contents back in the original container when you reach your destination, as long as it's completely empty,you can pack it in your hand luggage..

They will not let you take something that size through security. As others have suggested, decant it into 100 ml bottles.
