Water confiscated after Security in Buenos Aires

Jump to last reply

This comes up from time to time so is an update for those flying from Buenos Aires back to the US. We flew back to DFW on American Thurs night, Aug 4 and water (and other liquids) were confiscated after Security. We bought water at the gate and than had a secondary bag check when boarding and all liquids were taken.

BTW, the advice to get to the airport at least 3 hours ahead of our flight was right on. Everything moved VERY slowly. If you want to receive your VAT refund, let your partner/friend stand in the long line to check your bag while you go stand in the long line to get the Customs' stamp . . . otherwise, you might need 4 hours! This is before the LONG line you will stand in for Passport Control.

Another note RE: American . . . our plane was a Boeing 767-300 . . . old plane, no seatback entertainment, seats VERY close together. I'm 5'2" and never have a problem with legroom or seats in general, this configuration was horrible. If the person in front reclines at all, you can't get out of your seat. I did not recline (trying to be considerate) and it was a tortuous 11-hour flight. I'll really have to think long and hard before I commit to another of American's 767-300s.

BTW, we had a fabulous time in BA. It was 55° there and 110° back in Texas and that was just one of the perks!
