Hmmm- I live in Denver and I fly at least twice a week. As far as the getting plastered quicker in Denver, don't think that has applied to me- I can drink the same amount as in Chicago as in Denver with the same effect!
On the airplane I do notice people who look fine when they are drinking, and then the minute they get up, they are swerving thru the aisles!

People bring their own little bottles on all the time...even though it is against the rules and the airlines are concerned about people consuming their own stock because they cannot control the amount the pax drinks as easily as when the airline is serving the booze.
Secuirty won;t stop you and you can do it if you are somewhat inconspicuous about it and if you don't get drunk nobody is going to care.

Sorry to rain on the parade. As I have stated before in a couple of posts, I am a flight attendant for "a major American carrier" (whatever that means these days). You CAN NOT legally bring your own alcohol on board the aircraft. My airline had a special segment on this in our yearly training class. They are really starting to crack down on it. Have a couple of drinks at 5 dollars...you will relax and it will help you sleep. Next time, fly my airline...we are only $4.00. Have fun!!!!!!!!!

I don't know about Denver, but I have a home in Summit County and a little alcohol definitely goes a long way... a lot longer than San Francisco!

Fly United. Alcohol is free on International Flights and they offer Baileys after dinner.

From the presence (absence) of the flight attendants on my recent flights this summer, I don't see how they would know if you were topping off your glass of tonic with your own stash of gin.

They would probably know from the trail of empty mini bottles leading to you seat ! HA!
Grasshopper- I'm thinking since you have a home in Summit (vacation???), you haven't acclimated your body fulltime to the altitude, thus making it more susceptible to the effects of alcohol- no really, you are a good 5000 feet above Denver's altitude, so that might make a difference.

Is Delta still serving free alcohol on international flights?

No, no flyingcircus, I'll be spiking my (free) tonic with gin from my flask.
