So Dear Husband and I just got back from our Honeymoon in Aruba, and I wanted everyone to be aware of the BS that I had to deal with in BOS airport on Sunday 11/21
Having never flown international, when departing Aruba I went through security, Aruban Customs, Security Again, American Customs, and then we were "welcomed to the US " while still in Aruba. Kinda funny !
Then I went to the Duty Free to buy some Liquor for a gift for my family. As I am not a drinker myself, the deals were good, but I bought 2 bottles of Baileys and carried onto my flight.
So heres where the fun began, we land in BOS at gate C13. Our transfer flight to home in BUF was at Gate C31. Apparently in another terminal with guess what....... MORE SECURITY SCREENINGS !!!
Now I forget that I have liquor in my bag because I am supposed to just walk on to my next flight, with no issues. Not so much. Of course I was stopped, and told I would have to throw away my liquor or check it. After having a LOUD yelling and crying match with the TSA they allowed me to take the bottles to the Jet Blue counter ( IN MY SOCKS ) where I demanded to speak to a supervisor ( who told me it would be 30.00 to check my carry on. )
To which I replied in no uncertain terms...... Get the bag on the plane for free..... this is not my fault, no one told us there was MORE security !
Long story short and an hour later I was able to get the bag on for 0.00 after a lot of crying, but at the end of my honeymoon I should not have been subjected to that crap !
Just an FYI for anyone flying thru BOSTON to not buy at the Duty Free, or if your going to Buy it ahead of Customs and Check it in !
I also wrote a Scathing letter to JetBlue. Waiting to hear back on that !
