    Alcohol Question

    Has anyone ever brought the single serving alchohol(vodka etc) or wine on your carry on through the security scanner? Is that allowed or do they confiscate that?

    do you mean "nips"?

    the airlines do NOT allow passengers to bring their on liquor on board.
    however, people do bring it onboard.


    the tsa could very well confiscate.

    I used to carry them all the time even before 9/11. One time the flight attendant caught me and my brother drinking them on the plane and so she confiscated our nips. We had a 12 pack of rum bottles. She explained that we can't serve ourselves she has to do it so whenever we wanted a drink we had to ring her up. Poor flight attendant, we rang her up throughout the flight. LOL. This was in my young and wild days in my early 20s.

    You can bring alcohol on board but must be concealed in your stomach. However, you must never drive or operate heavy machinery as such.

    From the TSA site - says you can bring alcohol, doesn't mention consuming it

    We bring the little bottles all the time!! One time the TSA security guy said, hey I want to travel with you guy's! Never had a problem, put the bottles in a ziplock and put it right in the tray!
