finding flights not connecting in the US (carrying liquor)

Why bother? Booze is cheaper in the US than just about anywhere else
on the planet, even allowing for 'duty free' which it rarely ever

You pretty much hit the nail on the head there.

When you fly MAS you are not flying on a normal airline. You are
flying on a bankrupt vessel of the Malaysian Government. A Government
that makes the...

(it is absolutely ****, I flew it once and vowed never to set foot on
it ever again).
