    Ok so i am flying today and wanted to no, seeing as you can only take 100ml of liquid on a plane or whatever, whats going to happen when i get to the airport, check in our luggage and then buy vodka in duty free so we have something to drink on our balcony,

    the smirnoff bottles <black and 50 odd% :teeth:> in duty free are 1 litre + , will this be allowed on board

    Don't they do the various checks before letting you into the duty free area for that very reason?

    That said, I had a connecting flight, and I had to stuff my foreign-bought duty free in my case at Heathrow to get my connecting flight to Scotland.

    Yep. You can buy liquids in the airport to take onboard, no matter what size or else they wouldn't sell them!

    As long as ou buy them after going through security, yes :yep:
    I think at some airports you can buy liquids before but they are placed in a sealed bag and you're not allowed to open it until you're off the plane at the other end.

    Does this just apply to hand held luggage? can you put relativley any amounts of liquid and stuff in suitcases that you check in to the hold? (Obviously safe non bomb making liquids)

    Once you're through security you can buy whatever liquids you want.

    You can put anything you want in your suitcase cause you don't have access to it.

    I usually like to put shampoo, conditioner, shower gel and hair spray in my suitcase, but you can put whatever you like.

    What annoys me more is that you can't take sharp objects through security, but you can buy them at the other side =/

    They say we can't take sharp objects on planes for fear of hi-jacking.

    I say anyone who can hi-jack with tweezers deserves the plane.

    Yes, you can buy the vodka. Just make sure that you know the quantity that you can carry to your final destination. One bottle is not a problem in most places. Usually, you are allowed two bottles.

    My dad got through with a penknife! Was in one of the pockets since the last time he'd used it. Security did'nt even pick up on it He didn't even realise until he had reached his destination.

    You can take liquids after security checks. Make sure you dont take too much though in case you have a connecting flight later, else you might have to throw some stuff away.
