Obviously I cannot carry it on but i am hoping i can put it in my other luggage. Does anyone have any experience with this?
Oh, not sure it matters, but I'm flying Southwest.
Sure, it can go in your checked bags, no problem. While you're there, pick up some beer, too! I'd wrap both the soda jug (which is plastic) and any beer bottles with a big trash bag, and use a twist tie on it, just in case. Wrap it securely in your clothes so it doesn't rattle around, and it'll be fine.
