Drinking your own booze whilst (in most cases) is not illegal it is often against airline T&Cs. Many of the 'air rage' incidents are caused by people drinking their own duty free.
Yeah, I know it's the type of thing a disruptive passenger might do because there isn't enough free booze offered on board for them, so they want to get absolutely trashed before and during the flight.
However, things are changing now, and it's not free onboard. I would never thing of doing anything like this on Jet2, Flybe or Wizzair, but a lot of the low cost airlines do deals as well, so it's not a big deal to get three vodkas for a tenner, then 2 quid for a mixer (for the two of us, jet2) or two quarter bottles of wine for 6 euros (wizzair). I very much doubt BA will be doing that!
So if the local duty free sells little bottles of wine at a reasonable price to undercut BA, do you reckon if we buy them and take them onboard, with our provided cups, will BA throw a wobbly?
