I know knitting needles aren't allowed, nor are (of course) scissors but can you take an embroidery needle on an airplane?

I'd pack it in the suitcase rather than in hand luggage.

That's what I thought but worth a try? thick needle & 9hr flight...

When you say "worth a try" do you mean trying to take it in your hand luggage? If so, I think that would be foolish. Phone your airline and ask them.

Okay Soupy. Sounds like sane advice. BA, btw

They won't even let you take a metal nail file, so I doubt a needle which does have a sharp point would be allowed!
