    Just as a precaution, I would check what the laws are in the country you are going to. You don't want to get there and be arrested because of your reading material. Other countries have some wierd laws. Being a USA citizen doesn't allow you to break other countries laws and traditions. Personally I would take a couple of gun magazines and leave them on the plane when I got off.

    Take a LOT to read. Add a good, interesting book in addition to the magazines.

    I would take whatever the heck I wanted to read and if anybody does not like your selection of reading material - ...SUE their pants off...and that should pay for your trip.

    For a 21 hour flight, I hope you have more to read than just a few magazines.

    You could always go with something like 'Atlas Shrugged' or 'If Democrats Had Any Brains, They'd Be Republicans' ...
    Some good choices there...

    To the OP...take whatever you like.

    I am a (private) pilot, and I was travelling commercially from NY to San Francisco, with plans to do some flying out of Napa. I had with me some local aviation charts, which shows the San Francisco area airspace as well, which I was studying while waiting for my flight.

    Without warning I was approached by TSA, and scanned, and almost strip searched, becuase they thought I was going to highjack planes.

    Even after showing them my Federal FAA Identification, they were still leary. It all worked out ok, but it was not a nice experience.
    That's not much compared to them finding traces of C-4 in your suitcase.

    While I was in college I lived with my brother who was going to EOD school with the Navy.

    Anyone who's worked with C-4 before knows it's some sticky stuff and gets EVERYWHERE. He would come home with it all over his hands and clothes from playing with it all day. He would touch my things... wella.. transfer.

    Well, after three months of this it's safe to say I had C-4 on almost everything I owned and then tried boarding a plan to go home for Christmas.

    One little swab of my suitcase sent their bomb sniffing machine into a fit of bells and whistles that was NOT celebratory.

    They delayed me so long I missed my flight, my brother had to show his military ID again and again and explain just why it was my luggage was covered in traces of C-4.

    They finally managed to get me on about 4 different flights that got me home but it was certainly an experience.

    read what ever you like as stated earlier Nobody looks or cares . Would look to join the mile high club to pass the time.

    And as a general note if traveling with lima or brother book the next flight also you will be taking that one home.
