  • Yes. Just as long as it is checked and not on carry on.

  • If the bag is being checked yes, if you are taking it as carry on you would probably be called a terrorist because liquor is flammable and over the number of ounces allowed on plane. The only drink you can carry on with you is a bottled of water.

  • I wouldn't take the chance that it might explode under pressurization or be broken by those idiots who handle the luggage.....

  • When we went on a cruise, we bought a bunch of alcohol in Grand Caymen. We knew we'd be buying it, so we packed a bunch of empty Ziploc bags. When we were packing up to fly home, we put each bottle in a bag (or two), wrapped each seperately in a peice of clothing, then packed them in the middle of a hard suitcase. We did not have to declare it because we spent under a certain dollar amount but we still did state that we had it. Every bottle was still there, still wrapped how we wrapped it, when we got home, all were in one peice. It has to be in your checked luggage, you cannot take any in your carry on - unless you get bottles of 3oz or less and they all fit in your same 1qt ziploc with your toiletries you put in your carry on.

  • I would call the airlines or check the TSA website. You might be better off having the place you're buying from ship it to your house.
