As long as you buy the soda in one of the food concession stands after
you pass through the security gates, it is no problem.


At Manchester Airport in the Duty free section shop they have small
bottles of wine for sale, a notice is also on display that states
they are not for consumption aboard the plane!


why the **** not ?!

No. the restriction is against "liquids" both in the U.S. and other
countries.



So a can filled with "air" (air from city X, as a tourist gimmick) would
be OK to bring on the plane, but a standard 7-up or sprite depending on
your religion would not be OK.


I've had an empty bottle of clear plastic confiscated in security.

To ensure traveler's security, transportation security
officers (TSOs) may determine that an item not on the
prohibited items chart is prohibited. In addition, the TSO
may also determine that an item on the permitted chart is
dangerous and therefore may not be brought through the
security checkpoint.

Not allowed through security.

You can only take drinks on the plane that you purchase after security.

Thanks. That seems really dumb to me.


We certainly understand your sentiment. It has been reported that the "ban"
on liquids taken through security may be repealed in 2009. So, stay tuned.


Wouldn't it be OK if you bought your soda in transparent
containers of 3 fl oz or less?

It's the same as trying to take your own wine into a bar. You can have it
with you. but you can't open it.

So if that TSO didn't get layed last night, he'll confiscate my stuff with
no explanation at all?

Another reason to stay out of that contry of madmen.

After January 20th 2009 things will begin to change for the better.
Don't judge the U.S. on the last eight years of darkness.
