Did You Know You Can Get Fined $11,000 For Doing This?!
I would be lying if I said I didn't think of doing this! With that hefty of a fine though, yeah, I'll pass! Did you know you could get fined for doing this?
Nothing cools my nerves on the plane quite like a Screwdriver (OJ and vodka), but the thought of bringing my own is definitely in the past now. You can get up to an $11,000 fine for drinking your own booze on the plane! TSA allows you to bring up to a 3.4 ounce bottle in your carry-on, BUT if you get caught drinking it on the plane, BOOM, HUGE fine!!
According to Section 121.575 of the FAA's Code of Flight Regulations, no one "may drink any alcoholic beverage aboard an aircraft unless the certificate holder operating the aircraft has served that beverage to him/her."
Sorry to break it to you - you're going to have to continue buying those ridiculously marked up bottles of booze on the plane!
