I meant to Post this earlier as a WARNING to anyone who MAY find themselves in OUR position.
On the Orlando to Heathrow 'leg', the cabin Crew sold us Duty Free Spirits, without warning us, that as 'Onward Travelling Pax' we would have to go through Security once more (thereby having to ditch the Spirits!) To cut a long story short, I was sent back to the British Airways Desk to have my hand luggage put into the 'hold' for onward transmission to Glasgow - complete with a 'Fragile' label on it (Ho, ho, ho!) On arrival at Glasgow, YEP! You've guessed it, smashed to smithereens!
By this stage you are saying; 'What a half-wit'! (As I did) but to tell the truth, I never gave the re-run at Security any thought when I purchased the Spirits.
I don't want to speak 'ill' of the BA Cabin Crew - they were only trying to flog the 'goods', but there should be SOME kind of warning or caveat as to the consequences of buying on board for 'Onward Travelling Pax'?
Moral of the story? Don't do as I did! Happy Travelling!
Kind Regards, Jim
