Why is it not allowed to bring liquids from Sweden when travelling to the USA via FRA or AMS? A friend of mine was travelling ARN-FRA-MIA and the Duty-Free staff at ARN told him that a lot of the customers had to throw there sealed bags with a reciept inside in a waste bin in AMS or FRA when going to the USA even if it was sealed. So they refused to sell to him. They told him if you had a transit at LHR, MUC, CDG etc it would have beén ok!

The bottles may be in checked baggage, but not carry on in the main cabin.

In Europe you can buy Duty Free after the security control and have it sealed when you have a transfer or travelling to the US but not when you have a transit to the US in FRA or AMS I just find it very odd.

Probably just ways of dealing with the conflicting laws...although i think you'd find trouble still at LHR.

the TSA says this:

For passengers traveling from Europe to the United States:

If you purchase liquid duty-free items at an EU airport, those items will be permitted throughout the EU and other European security checkpoints if they are in the tamper evident bag.

On nonstop flights bound for the US, duty free liquids purchased in the EU are permitted only if they meet US requirements (delivered to the aircraft for passenger pick-up, bought on plane, or purchased after the security checkpoint).

If you are flying to the US and have a connecting flight, even duty-free liquids that meet US requirements will NOT be permitted through US security checkpoints. If you have a connecting flight, liquid duty free purchases must be placed in your checked baggage. Since you will be required to reclaim your checked bags prior to passing through customs inspection, you can place duty-free liquids into your bags and recheck it for your connection.

Please note, this information applies only to liquid, aerosol or gel purchases that exceed the 3 ounce amount for single containers packed in a one-quart plastic bag.

TSA Tips
When traveling to Europe with a connection, buy your duty-free liquid items on the last leg of your trip.

In Europe, passengers should not open the special sealed tamper evident bag before the security checkpoint or else the duty free contents may be seized.

When returning from Europe on a connecting flight in the US, use your time in customs to place any duty-free liquid items in your checked bags.
