Outside grog on planes

When I flew from Phuket to Chiang Mai on Air Asaia, Air Asia staff said YES when I asked if I could BYO beer stubbies and drink on board. So I brought a couple of big stubbies.

Any other airline/country allow you to do this? Air Asia doesn't sell grog, at least not on any flights I have had with them.

    Never heard of byo but my husband has bought a beer on air Asia Sydney to kl.

    Of course you can, but remember that in most countries they dont allow you to bring more than a certain amount of liquid as carry on luggage. So you probably will have to buy it at the terminal

    need to get it sealed in a separate bag by the dutyfree people with receipt, otherwise they wont let you take it on

    Phuket to Chiang Mai is a domestic flight, so there would be no need for Duty Free or Customs restrictions. You can take on whatever you can get away with (weight / size) and if the on-board staff make a fuss, what have you lost? 180 baht for a couple of long necks on a 2 hour flight is worth the risk.

    Australian airlines frown upon drinking your own alcohol on-board as your alcohol intake needs to be monitored under RSA.

      It was only about 1 - 1.2 litres of beer. Not an entire litre of spirits. And the FA said not a problem. There was no sneaking.
