That it's a federal offense to take your own whiskey on an airplane? Neither did I.  :-\

Yeah, its an offense to consume any alcohol on board, that's not provided by the airline.  Although I find the $7/drink more offensive!

Since it's illegal to make your own, I would assume that transporting it via airline would also be illegal.

Yep... and if you have more than seven days worth of food stockpiled... you can be detained and questioned as a terrorist, oh and you don't get a lawyer either.  Hmmm.... your own whiskey on a plane is a cakewalk, go ahead, live on the wild side... I dare ya.    ;)  8)   :-X

Laws on the books are one thing, but often times enforcement is another thing entirely.

As the saying goes, "It's easier to get forgiveness than it is to get permission."

The stewardess was pretty cool about it. She gave me a pretty stern lecture, the a minute later came over and asked me what I was drinking. TOld her whiskey, and braced myself for an air marshal to come over and put me in a choke hold. But, she came back, and slipped me two of those little 7$ bottle of Jack Daniels.  ;D

Forgiveness... Being good natured and contrite wil get you a whole lot further than being arrogant or contrary.

FWIW "Stewardess" is a bit of an insult these days.  The prefered title is flight attendant.

Kind of hard anyways these days with the 100 ml restriction. I, of course, have NEVER brought fermented potato juice in a small water bottle on an airplane........ ::)
