    When you go on a long international flight remember that if something doesn't work and you have been inconvenienced in any way (ie: the in-flight entertainment or music wasn't working) then politely ask the flight crew what they can do or you. Some airlines have been known to offer you duty-free vouchers or cash certificates as compensation for being compensation throughout a long haul flight.
  9. Check Airline & Customs Regulations For Duty Free Items        Add Comments
    Always check with the airline that you are flying about their regulations in regard to duty free items that you can take on-board the plane, as well as the customs regulations at your destination country about duty free goods. Recently a lot of duty free perfume and liquor has been confiscated because of the regulations regarding the taking of liquids on-board planes. If you are in any form of doubt about what you can and can't take with you then the best solution is to buy your duty free goods once you touch down at your destination.
