Can I carry ceramic items that I purchased here in my carry-on or do I have to put it in my suitcase?

According to the people who fly Alaska Airlines on this forum, they won't allow it in your carry-on. But, I don't know of any other airline that requires it to be in checked luggage, and I've had no problem with American and Frontier.

I would call your Airlines. Yes, what Kansas said is correct for Alaska Airlines. That's the airline we use to fly to PV. It has to be put in your checked luggage, not carry-on.

I have brought back lots of ceramics and was quite worried the last time we flew Delta to Cancun last March, 2013. They allowed it to he in my carry-on and when I called to verify this before we went, they personally wrote a note in my file that they ok'd it in case I would have an issue. But even though they allow it, the final say is the security within the airport. TSA. Whatever they say.... flies. I had a ton in my carry-on as well as I hand carried 3 huge bowls in my arms from Cancun, to Minnesota, to Oregon all day long. My arms were tired, lol.

So, call to be sure.

I agree to check with your own airlines. I have never had a problem myself, but I have read here about the Alaska Air restrictions.
