China Now Only Allows 2bottle Drinks/water Inflt

Thu Feb 06, 2003 11:35 am

Because of the recent hijack incident on board Air China flight, CAAC has announced that passengers are ONLY allowed to bring 2 bottles of drinks or water (no bigger than 500ml/cc).

China claims this will help the airlines to protect the passengers.

The bottles will be opened at the customs for "security check".

Passengers are forbidden to bring alcohols on board, only on cargo deck, 2 at once (per Kg).

A lot of airlines don't allow you to bring on your own alcohol, at least in the US I think its illegal.

As to other things, that's kinda annoying.

Although water bottles are an excellent way to smuggle a variety of drugs in suspension.

Don't see how the hijack thing comes into play.
