I've carried a glass bottle on board. It wasn't a beer bottle. It was when I was 10 and before 9/11. Age might make a difference.

Okay I'll bite... why an empty beer bottle? And what about all the stuff you can buy in duty free? A full bottle isn't an issue but they may wonder about your state of mind carrying an empty one....


After Monday and Tuesday even the calendar says WTF...

If they're empty, they shouldn't  Wink

You should be okay:

I'd recommend wrapping the bottles in news paper or tissue paper to keep them safe. Bring some extra paper in case they ask you to unwrap a few of them.

If worse comes to worse, there is absolutely no reason they could not be checked (if you want to go to that hassle)

Some people collect them

One of my brother has collected rare or local beer bottles his whole life...

I've had no problem with this. Consider that some airlines give you a (small) bottle of wine with your meal, even on flights to/from the U.S. Post-9/11, I have brought back a suitcase of rum from San Juan, crates of beer and wine from Germany and South Africa, etc., and nobody said anything.

I have carried many, many bottles--wine, beer, pisco, singani, cachaca, Amarula Cream, etc., etc.--in my carry-on luggage and I have never had the slightest problem. And with an empty bottle, they most certainly will not care that you're 18.

The only time I have seen a problem is if a passenger tries to consume his/her own alcohol on board, which is not allowed (only the F/As can serve). But that's obviously not an issue here if it's empty. Enjoy your flight!

Recently brought some wine from South Africa back to the US by carry-on. Nobody cared....apart from I who was worried it might break somewhere on the 9800 mile journey!

Can't see it being taken away by security as there are probably numerous places airside selling glass bottles in numerous forms.

Security is a bit of a lark really. Until recently you couldn't bring along tweezers but sure you can bring along an empty glass bottle to smash across someone's head/face/crotch/{insert part of anatomy here} Big grin

A DL check-in agent in SEA told me explicitly that glass bottles of beverages are permitted on flights. I successfully carried several full six-packs of beer onboard on a SEA-ATL without any problem just weeks ago. Don't know if the rules change for international though.

I carried on board several times bottles of wine on my return trips to the USA from Europe and Brazil without any problems. You should not have any problem i think!!
