American Airlines liquor policy
Flying AA straight through (from STX to MIA then beyond) for the first time in a couple of years. Does anyone know if you can still check a liquor box as a free checked item? IMO, it's not worth paying the $25 fee considering there's a high risk that one or two bottles get broken anyway.
How quickly we forget.....I haven't flown out of STX in 3 years...WOW! I was picturing the shop at the STT airport. Anyone know why there isn't a duty free on STX? Just not enough business??
Anyhow, I wanted to make a suggestion to anyone who is planning to carry liquor back to the states. Don't buy the cheaper stuff...ie Cruzan. I pay $19 for the big bottle (1.75 ltr) in FL, however a bottle of Grand Mariner is mega expensive. I remember once in CUL, a lady had too many bottles. She started to keep the $3 bottle of cheap gin and put back the Grey Goose. When I suggested she do the opposite, it was like a bell went off.
Is it still 6 litres if one is a VI product? Consider the Cruzan Rum Cream. It's hard to find in the states, and WAY better in a Bushwacker than Bailey's! 🙂
