Fail for letting him on in the first place.  They're generally pretty strict about that.
 
2013-01-04 03:05:09 PM  
Duty free you buy in the terminal.  He probably put it into his carry-on as everything else was already checked.
 
2013-01-04 03:06:05 PM  
You can also buy duty free on the plane. Got a liter of Remy Martin on my last flight home from overseas.

Perhaps. It happened on a flight in Iceland, so it depends on how sue-happy they are there.

imho they wouldn't tape his mouth unless he was firing fbombs. and i doubt you can be so farked up you can do that and choke at the same time. in other words if he was almost passed out drunk the most he could have mumbled was a few nonsense sounds. he was a angry and loud drunk.

Only people I've seen so drunk they got talked to by the crew was some Irish folks. They came on having a good time and got way over served. Never seen anyone cuffed or taped though.

Duty free liquor rocks!

I recently came back from a trip to my homeland in the Caribbean (St Thomas, USVI).

sphotos-b.xx.fbcdn.net

This is two bottles of Finlandia vodka. Purchased for $9 per bottle (normally retails for around $15-$22 for a 750ml bottle here in CA).

It wasn't until I got home, unpacked these bottles, and put one in the fridge next to my other vodka bottles, that I realized that the two bottles I bought duty free were actually 1L bottles.

I bought 2L of vodka for less than what 750ml costs me.

// also brought back run and rum creme, then had to stop because I hit the weight limit for checked bags.

A long time ago I was flying from Copenhagen to Toronto on a Super Caravelle that had to stop for gas in Iceland. On the first leg of the flight they handed out catalogues and you could order your duty-free. They picked it up in Reykjavik and delivered it to your seat during the second leg, along with a Canada Customs declaration card. A lot of people had bought more than they could bring into Canada so we all did what any good Scandinavian-Canadians would do; passed open bottles up and down the aisle. I was only 14 but I pitched in and helped. Good times, good times.

We were flying out of Reagan. There was a lady that was so hammered she could not walk three steps without falling over, once into an empty child stroller. She fell down about 10 feet from the gate and just sat there for about 10 minutes as the plane boarded. She finally stood up and stumbled to the gate, and they let her go right through. A man said something to the gate attendant about her, the gate attendant just shrugged her shoulders.

Flew from Cabo into Pheonix a long time ago. Before I boarded I threw in a couple bottles of premium tequila in my suitcase. After we touched down I was pulled for luggage check and the man laughed at me when he opened my suitcase. You see, the compartment where my bag was was not pressurized and now the premium tequila was half in the bottles and half in my clothes. Dammit.

Moral of the story = if you bring bottles back with you on a plane, either put them in carry on bag or find out for sure if luggage compartment is pressurized.

Good luck & happy drinking & flying.

Uncoordinated but sedate drunks tend to fare better than over-animated loudmouths in just about any circumstance. Most people that get denied boarding due to being intoxicated have called attention to themselves in some way. Tipping over quietly may not make it on to anyone's radar.

I have never had the joy of purchasing duty-free... anything, actually. But, I have gotten drunk to fly. Got stuck on a 10-hours layover in Honolulu. Had a red-eye flight into San Francisco that left at 11pm. I am terrified of flying over water, and with no Ambien left, I had to resort to option #2: the huge mai tais served at the bar right next to the gate. By the time we boarded the plane, I was so drunk that I fell asleep right after takeoff. Didn't wake up until 30 minutes before we touched down in San Fran.

/then got a call while on our layover in Atlanta telling me that my grandmother died while we were in Maui

The 1L has been steadily replacing fifths here recently, mostly among imported liquor. I've seen them popping up everywhere, along with the slightly higher prices; I wonder if 2L for the handle is going to be next.

Also, that amazes me, because I've never seen anything remotely worth buying on international flights. It's all high end stuff that's marked up even more than retail at home. I guess I don't take the right kind of flights.

Duty free is in 1 litre bottles because limits are set in multiplies thereof. You were over the US duty free limit, and now you have confessed to defrauding the federal government.

The limit for the USVI is 4L-5L (depending on how/where/what you purchase) per person. I brought back around 3L (one L being a product of the USVI). I could have had my friend carry some in her luggage as well if I wanted.

https://help.cbp.gov/app/answers/detail/a_id/424/~/bringing-alcohol- fr om-u.s.-insular-possessions-into-the-u.s.-%28u.s.-virgin

"Customs and Border Protection (CBP) will allow you to enter the U.S. with up to five liters of alcohol duty-free as part of your $1,600 exemption - as long as at least four liters were purchased in the insular possession, and at least one of them is a product of that insular possession."
