You must not take any item into the aircraft cabin which you are forbidden from taking into the aircraft cabin by law. You must not take swords; replica‚ toy or antique guns; knives; archery bows; arrows or similar weapons into the aircraft cabin. Please note that ceremonial items such as a Skean Dhu are classed as dangerous items which cannot be carried on your person or in hand baggage.
