Flying AS805 SMFOGG this weekend and was wondering is AS has milk available on board? Our 16 month old is past the breast milk and formula stages and has since moved onto whole milk. My understanding is that I can't bring milk past the TSA checkpoint so... will I have to buy milk at one of the airport vendors or can I expect some to be available on board?

According to the Alaska Airlines website:

Alaska Airlines' complimentary beverage service includes: Coke, Diet Coke, Coke Zero, Sprite, Sprite Zero, Fanta Orange Soda, Ginger Ale, Tonic Water, Sparkling Seltzer Water, Orange Juice, Apple Juice, Cranberry Juice, Tomato Juice, Bloody Mary Mix, Tazo® Awake tea, Tazo® Sweet Wild Orange tea, and Athena Water.

Milk is not mentioned in the above list. Coffee is also available and presumably milk is offered to accompany coffee but I would not necessarily assume you could get a whole container.

You could also call Alaska Airlines customer service and see if you can get a more detailed answer: 1-800-654-5669, 8:00 a.m. - 5:45 p.m. (PT), Monday-Friday, or use the "Ask Jenn" chat feature at the Alaska Airlines website.

You may bring milk or baby formula through a security checkpoint. If you bring it in a sealed child's bottle that can be opened for inspection ( do not bring a cardboard milk box since it cannot be opened and resealed). Bring only the quantity necessary for the flight. All you should have to do is tell the TSA agent that it is medically necessary for your child. Since your child in under 2years old, there should not be a problem.



If you have never designed an airplane part before, let the real designers do the work!

I want to presume it would be, however I could also see them going with either half n half or those little cups.

Everything seems to imply breast milk. Are you suggesting that I would be able to fill a bottle or two with regular milk, tighten the cap, imply it's medically/socially necessary, and we'd be ok to go?

For infants it should be allowable. They suggest but do not require a label, and it must be presented before you get scanned. Be prepared for them to confiscate it just in case, but baby food and milk are allowed through security since infants cannot eat food available on planes.

Just got word from AS via Facebook that they do not offer milk on their flights. Guess I will be trying my luck with the TSA and if that fails see just how expensive a bottle of milk is post security!
