    The real problem here is applying the 100 ml rule to duty free purchases. Frankly, I'm surprised the duty free industry hasn't managed to get security systems changed to allow for transit with duty free items. In Canada it is possible to bring duty free through on an international to domestic connection when arriving with a tamper-evident sealed package from a select group of countries, but it's not obvious why other countries aren't allowed to provide the same packaging.

    Amazed the woman didn't contract serious alcohol poisoning.

    Too drunk to fly? Apparently she was too drunk to stand!
