Are nail clippers allowed on airplanes?

Your Nails Can Be Considered a Deadly Weapon

We all want to carry our nail care sets with us in the event of a nail emergency, but be careful when traveling. Since the attacks on America on Sept. 11, 2001, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has set specific guidelines on what can, and cannot, be taken on an airplane. In some cases, nail clippers and cuticle clippers are not allowed. The most recent revision of the FAA-approved carry-on items does include nail and cuticle clippers, but it is subject to different airports. If you're asked to remove your nail or cuticle clippers from your carry-on bag before boarding the plane, do so immediately. You can always purchase another clipper at your next destination.
