TSA doesn't just "take stuff" without a reason. I suspect there is more to these cigars that you care to admit.

Your second comment is also flat out wrong.

Keep believing what you want, but even the TSA has some bad seeds. (they took the legal Davidoffs, not the cuban partagas shorts)

And yes, I realized after posting that I should probably check the information the gate agents told me versus what the regulations actually state.

Duty Free wouldn't be able to sell alcohol if that were the case.

The duty is pretty cheap. Like 50 cents a liter give or take.

Oh really? They took a bottle of cologne, spare camera battery, just recently my buddy had them take a bottle Jenever all from checked bags- TSA left a nice note saying that they had searched the bags. Jeez wonder who else may have taking our stuff?


How about the Honolulu TSA that had to fire 17 percent of its workforce for thievery.

Another TSA case:
TSA agent steals $200K worth of gear, resells it on eBay
The TSA reached a mind-boggling new low in customer service this week when it was revealed that one agent had single-handedly absconded with over $200,000 worth of travelers' belongings


TSA are thieves/perverts,drug dealers,gun smugglers,money runners,ect,ect,ect

That falls under Customs, and not once have they bothered with taxes.
At customs desk, "anything to claim" --> "nope just some beer" -->"welcome back to the states".


This was 1 of 2 bags


what fits in 1 bag

Duty free, on every international flight I've been on, has been held by the flight attendants and given back to you as you exit the plane at the destination. That's why they have those big sealed bags they put it in when you buy before a flight.

So are you agreeing with me that you can carry alcohol on a flight or did you do a poor job of reading the conversation?
