    Can I take a bota on an airplane?

    It has the residue of many many different liquors in there. I don't wash it.....the flavor of the pour is built on the booze prior.

    So it smells like liquor. TSA going to snatch my tailgating liqour container or will it pass inspection?

    I just saw this article today: Passengers could be asked to give drink samples to TSA | News - Home

    Not quite related, but apparently new testing.

    They test your bottles of water and sodas now at the DSM airport.

    Check it or it's in the trash. Of course unless you want to step out of line and call someone to come get it or to mail it to yourself.

    I thought you had to buy drinks after you go through security?

    Yes, they are randomly testing at the gate (or other places after initial security).

    Maybe they should just assign someone to accompany each person onto the plane. They could hold it for you if you need to take a leak, just so no funny business happens in there.

    Re: Can I take a bota on an airplane?

    Crap like this is why I only fly when there is absolutely no alternative. Going on vacation this summer to a few locations. I'll log about 4,500 miles in the car. Thankfully, I like to drive and the locations are relatively new for me so windshield time is enjoyable.

    I am somewhat in the boat with you in that my family NEVER flew anywhere for vacation. If we couldn't get there in a day to day and a half drive we didn't go.

    On the other hand I am spoiled being very into aviation and having family with planes now that I use and am working on my license. Private is definitely the way to go if you can afford it.

    Reading this makes me want to take a giant bota on TSA's lawn.

    Re: Can I take a bota on an airplane?

    I flew to Lexington Ky. this past weekend for work. I swear that at any time there are 10 TSA employees just standing around watching the others.
    Now they want to check your drink prior to boarding ? That's just plain stupid being that you can't bring a drink through security.


    They say country music speaks to the heart. Unfortunately, it has to go through your ears to get there.

    Never have problems flying. Ever. Bring a water bottle and fill it up before you get to the gate. Or buy something after you get through security.

    They are inspecting after security at the gates.

    (I never have problems either but the hassle to not have problems isn't worth it to me.)
