Alcohol in check in baggage.

So yes I have base ticket AirAsia. The flight is actually Saigon into DM (realize swampy forum but that's irrelevant). So if I request check in bag (4kg) instead of taking it carry on, I will be charged extra. I seem to recall once on flight to Japan my gf needed check in bag and I decided to have my small bag checked in also. Her ticket already included the extra limit charge. Mine was just a 7kg. I was not charged extra. Just lucky? 

When I flew from CM to Danang with AirAsia , they gave me an option of 7 kilos of hand luggage for free or 20 kilos of hold luggage for a few 100 Baht extra .

   I choose the 7 kilo option and when I checked myself and my luggage in, they gave me my bag back and told me and told me to take it hand luggage and confiscated my moisturizer

Yes you are correct and thankyou for your help. I have now just checked out AirAsia site. I cannot check in my carry on allowance. I need pay minimum 20kg check in baggage (even though my bag is under 4kg).. That will cost 680baht. So I'm back to drawing board. Thanks for pointing that out. 

Now the question is how much whisky can a someone drink before Tuesday arvo. 

Glad you pointed out the carry on rule.

Quite a clear question. As has already been stated it's OK in your checked in luggage but not allowed in a cabin bag.

Unless you buy it after security at duty free.

Your point? My OP went into detail of bringing the booze with me to airport. The one litre allowance once past security is irrelevant.

Ooooh sorry Doctor Jack 54. (Age or IQ......no,no,no I am joking ) 

Most of us experienced flyers know that anything over 100ml in cabin baggage is not allowed.

OK sorry, wires crossed. Whisky in Check in OK, over 100ml in Cabin bag not OK.

Clearly he is not a drinker

Very true. I remember working in a club in Munich, and it was expected of the band to join guests at their table in the break. One guy invited us all over to share a bottle of Remy MArtin AND COKE.

Pretty clear to me.

You was mistaken , he was asking about taking whisky as hand luggage , as subsequent posts have shown

He was talking about check-in luggage; unfortunately he didn't realise the intricacies of check-in luggage with AirAsia

Just read it all again and have to say I'm embarrassed to be part of one of the most pedantic, petty and point scoring threads for a while. My apologies to DrJack54 for my part in continuing this nonsense. 🙏

Very true. I apologize to forum. Have since done some research. I cannot have my carry on into check in luggage. It will cost me almost 700baht. My small excuse is the couple of times I have check small bag in was when travelling with Thai gf who had check in 20kg. 

My bag was just checked in with hers. I now get the rules. I will attempt to drink bottle of single malt tomorrow. Thanks for members help. 

This thread can now be closed. Ta to all.
