Liquids in your checked-in luggage

Apart from weight, is there any limit to the amount of liquids you can carry in your checked-in luggage.

I've had a good read of the forum & there doesn't seem to be any limit. Nothing mentioned on the airline website as well.

There might be a customs limit if you're talking about booze - depends where you're flying to.

No, its not alcohol or petrol, just cans of pop/soft drinks.

I don't think there would be a problem, but just wondered as you do

Why where are you going that they don't have anything to drink?

Off to Thailand, lots of British food/drinks that ex-pats can't get there, or cheaper to have brought 1/2 way round the world instead :).

No restrictions in packed luggage so it won't be a problem.

Be careful with the liquids in checked luggage as pressure change in flight causes expansion and contraction. Sealed glass bottles come through if well padded to avoid breakage. Plastic bottles should be OK, but open them carefully if they are fizzy drinks so they don't spray all over the room. Not sure about the aluminum cans often used for soft drinks, but I would not risk their popping open and spilling all over my suitcase.

I'll let you know if the cans survive their journey or not. Worst case scenario, either my clothes arrive a bit wet or the bomb disposal experts blow my lugguage up, upon arrival in Bangkok :)

If you're putting fizzy drinks in there it'll be a horrible mess! I wouldn't put anything carbonated or pressurized into checked bags for sure.
