I think if I was part of the passenger list and not carrying any transparent ziplock quart size bag containing liquid, I would support this and aid a fellow passenger. Also hate wasted food.
Take a swig, pass it along.
Whenever someone forgets to check some liquor, the security checkpoint should hand out some paper cups to all the peeps waiting in line to have a good time.
Right and don’t forget to share it to the pilot and crew.
They’re sorted already.
I forgot about all the stupidity once on a return flight after a cruise. Had a large bottle of Bombay Gin in the carry on. The Stupid Army disapproved and forbade it coming with me, so I gave it to the shoeshine guy. He was nonplussed… I think it happened to him regularly.
Let’s for the sake of glee not overthink this.
My last international traveling companion had like 1/2 a watered down cocktail in a Dublin “American” theme bar and then cried for a few hours.
Love convinces us the wrong people are so Right.
At PHL I had to open a dead-sea gift set once to throw away a 4oz. bottle of body lotion (a christmas gift for my sister).
Much later, I found out I had been flying with a pair of scissors every week for the past 5-6 weeks in the same carry on bag.
Scissors. Body lotion.
The good news is that I’ve also been caught with a swiss army knife/multitool in European airports. They were unimpressed with the size, and let me board the plane with it.
But don’t get me wrong. I’ve also found what the limit is for the German TSA. I brought back something not unlike this back from India, which caused the German TSA to have a bit of a discussion on what to do about it:
On my last overseas flight my companion and I ordered french wine whenever the flight attendants came to serve us… that was the beginning of the best time of my life.
Didn’t last too long, sadly, but boy, was it good while it did.
Once I flew from Germany to the Canary Islands only to discover that I still had my butterfly knife still in my jacket when I arrived there. Had no problems coming back, either, even though these knives are illegal in Germany, period. Don’t know how that went unnoticed, but there you go…
I’d do the same as her. Not because I have a drinking problem, but simply because the spite is sweeter than the hangover is painful.
Oh I totally got caught with my “Yogic Healing Wand”. It was quite festive.
Two TSA agents wandered off with it to chat. One made clubbing motions, and the other took it and made stabbing motions. Followed by, “You cannot take zis on ze plane.”
lol. Almost worth the price of entry.
When running a large round c for one of my early startups, i had my first nyc to lax first class flight. The CFO and I (CTO) attempted to drink all the red wine on the flight. We did or were cut off. Was to drunk to care.
What I’d like to know is:
Were the clubbing and stabbing motions made as a serious, deadpan demonstration of the hazards this object poses on a flight or in jest? Living in this country for that long makes me think both options are equally likely.
Seemed to be a serious discussion. Germans are notoriously serious when it comes to their day jobs.
So did you get a new healing wand?
Nope. Checked it, and super glued it back together afterward.
Ain’t no party like an airport security party!
You and me a lot of Guinness…no crying guaranteed.
