If you are one of the millions expected to travel this Memorial Day Weekend, the Transportation Security Administration wants you to leave knives and other banned items home.
Airlines expect 2.6 million air travelers over the holiday weekend, a 2.5 percent increase from 2014 according to AAA.
More than 60,000 passengers were expected Friday at San Diego’s Lindbergh Field.
In the last 24 hours, TSA officers at Lindbergh Field have confiscated knives, tools and even a credit card knife.
It’s just a drop in the bucket when it comes to the estimated 7,000 pounds of prohibited items collected at the airport’s security checkpoints each week, officials said Friday.
Passengers should review what is prohibited as a carryon item before they arrive to the airport, officials said.
There are even certain foods that need to be checked.
"If passengers just take the time to put it in their checked bag, it'll be fine and it will be there when they get there," said spokesperson Nico Melendez.
