Carry-On Alcohol?

You can bring alcohol onto the plane to add to your diet coke!!!!

Here is what I found on the TSA website:

Travelers may now carry through security checkpoints travel-size toiletries (3 ounces or less) that fit comfortably in ONE, QUART-SIZE, clear plastic, zip-top bag.

With the exception of medications, any amount of liquid including alcohol greater than three ounces must be packed in your checked baggage.

Liquids, including alcohol purchased after clearing the security checkpoint, are permitted aboard aircraft.

Do you see the loophole?  I can carry on alcohol that is less then 3 ounces!!!

I was first introduced to this concept while reading a travel article online about a women who was going to Vegas and brought alcohol with her!!   (read this…it is awesome)

I am so excited! But I am not sure why.

I really don’t drink on the plane. In fact, I have never ordered a drink on a flight. I don’t know why. I guess I just thought that it was too expensive or sometimes embarrassing.  But for some reason, I think I would feel better if I brought my own.

Maybe I am excited by this because I have been home for a few days (snow) and could really use a drink. Or maybe it’s because the only time I really drink is on vacation where no one knows me (I am a teacher). Or maybe it’s just because I can’t sleep on the plane. Now when Roni takes me across the country on a red eye, I can get drunk and pass out!

That sounds awesome.  I’m a quiet drunk.

Have you done this before? The next time I get on a plane, I’m taking my little bottles of sunshine, ordering a Diet Coke, and kicking up my feet.

Hmmm, I wonder what people next to me would think when I pull out a baggie full of alcohol?

Smart? Genius? Alcoholic?

I’m not promoting drinking on the plane, but seriously, how drunk can you get with a few small bottles of vodka?

I will let you know.

    We brought alcohol on the plane last November. The flight attendant saw our open bottle on the tray and told us to.put it away or it would be confiscated. She told us it was against FAA rules to bring opened bottles inboard. So if you are gonna open and pour be very discreet. It probably has to do with you not spending $7 or $8 to buy their alcohol.

    You really make iit appear so easy along with your presentation but I in finding this mattter to be actually one thing that I think I might never understand. It sort of feels too complicated and extremely vastt for me. I am looking ahead for your next publish, I will attempt to get the grasp of it! Reply
