|Subject: RE: Camera Tripod on plane?|
I would bet that you will be told that this is not acceptable as carry-on. I was told a 1 nail file I had could not be carried on. I threw it away rather than walk back to put it in my luggage.
As a result, my suggestion is that you should put it in your luggage to begin with and not attempt to carry it on the plane. You are not going to use it there anyway.
There is, of course, a lot of judgment involved in what is acceptable as carry-on, so one person may tell you one thing and another the opposite.
