Traveling Internationally on a U.S. Airline?

Jump to last reply

Don't plan on purchasing liquids AFTER security in an airport out of the United States. Most U.S. airlines are hiring "kids" to go through your carry-on stuff. Cans of juice that your purchased for the flights or water will get dumped right before you walk on the plane. This happened to me in Dubai and Hong Kong. I picked up a bottle of water at the United Airlines lounge and it was dumped just before walking on the plane.

Just think, if airlines turn the heat up to 90 degrees on the flight, they may be able to start charging $10 for a glass of water.

As for duty free items, I believe if they are not opened, they will not be dumped, but personally, I won't even give it a try.

I believe Qantas does this on flights to the United States since they are listed as a high security flight.

As far as I know, they are not doing this as you leave the United States or on flights within the United States. Comments would be appreciated.
