    I'm just familiar with that particular airport. I was there again today as a matter of fact.

    FWIW, you ARE best to be prepared with your own food and beverage. We bought soda and water before getting on the plane yesterday. The Delta attendants breezed through the cabin only once with the drink cart and then followed up with coffee or water. Customer no service. We won't go into the attendant who woke my husband up because she thought the 2 unruly boys in the back of the plane were his!

    So much for flying interline in the future with hopes that the flights wouldnt be full. I occasionally call the employee travel line to see how many non revs are listed and how many open seats there are. Ha!

    I usually end up getting the biscuits and gravy at the Carolina pit BBQ when I go to Aruba through Charlotte. It's not the least bit healthy but it's delicious and sticks with you for a while.

    Biscuits and gravy are my number one favorite breakfast...the only thing that makes it better is a side order of grits slathered in butter !!!! YUM !!!!

    Taking food on plane

    I didn't know you could bring food from home on plane. I thought it would be taken when we went through check points and x-ray machine.

    just no liquids thru the TSA checkpoint (carry on)
    the blue icepacks thru carry on are a 50/50 shot sometimes they are allowed other times not.
    if u do bring a bag lunch, make sure that you eat it all as one cannot bring fresh produce such as apples, bananas etc into aruba
    Happy Holidays to you and yours!

    You can not take liquids through the TSA security checkpoint. We bring our lunch and snacks and buy water and soda near the gate prior to boarding the flight. Worst comes to worst you can also purchase food at the airport to carry on board and it is not considered a 'carry on'.

    Why do we buy our own beverages?
    1. Don't have to wait for the beverage cart.
    2. Delta only "flies" through with the cart once.


    Coming home from Aruba, at US Immigrations there will be USDA officers questioning food being brought on board. Then it is not worth it imho.
