You can get hit with a $11,000 fine if you drink your own alcohol on a flight


We asked flight attendant Celessa Dietzel the one thing she wishes everyone knew about flying. Following is a transcript of the video.

It's just like a bar. You wouldn't bring your own booze into a bar.

You cannot drink your own alcohol on an aircraft. A lot of people don't know this. You can bring your under 3.4 ounce or less little bottles, mini-bottles sealed in a plastic container. That is allowed through TSA.

You can tuck that into your carry-on bag. You cannot open that up, you cannot consume it. Don't do it on an aircraft.

You cannot be intoxicated on an aircraft. It's a very big deal right now and it's been happening a lot, and a lot of people just don't know. They think, "I'll order a glass of ice, and a thing of tonic and we'll just open up the bar."

It's just a big no-no. That's just bad etiquette, and it's huge a Federal Aviation regulation and up to an $11,000 fine so it's a very expensive drink, so just don't do it.
