Nope, not a screener. I work at corporate headquarters for an airline...which means I fly a lot! And I definitely agree that things are way to complicated now and that they can be quite rude! What's especially troublesome is that sometimes they don't know the latest rules but will fight you until you can produce the latest regulation from the website or whatever. Seriously, print the info from the website to take with you!
The regs have been changed to allow any liquids or gels as long as their in approved containers. So, a small container of honey would be fine.
Were you able to find a direct flight or will you be connecting somewhere?
