3-1-1 for carry-ons = 3.4 ounce (100ml) bottle or less (by volume) ; 1quart-sized, clear, plastic, zip-top bag; 1 bag per passenger placed in screening bin. One-quart bag per person limits the total liquid volume each traveler can bring.3.4 ounce (100ml) container size is a security measure.

Are glass water bottles allowed on planes? Can I bring a glass bottle on an airplane? Empty: yep, checked or carry on, so long as it fits in a legal-size carry on if you're bringing aboard. Full (even partially): up to 3.4 ounces in a carry on, so long as all your liquids fit in a 1 quart bag; any size in checked-bags.

Do liquids have to be in original containers when flying? Liquids and gels must be in individual containers of 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters) or less and placed inside one clear, quart-size, plastic, zip-top bag (such as this option from Ziploc). If youneed to bring more than 3.4 ounces of any liquid or gel substance, it should go into your checked luggage or be shipped ahead.
