This is what kills me - an airline charges $5 for a small bottle of, say, rum. You can get a 2 -3 oz. bottle of rum in a liquor store for about $1.50. Strikes me more like profit margin - but then not an expert on the legalities and all. If anyone here is, would appreciate shedding some info on this.
