Come on...make them drink them in fron of you or throw them out and get on with life....we can be TOO cautious and crazy..Unless of course they where 20 year old Mooslimb males..
Still, she said, new security rules require that even drinks purchased in a secured area must be consumed or discarded before a person gets on a plane.
New security rules remind me of the "Zero tolerence" rules some educational institutions go by.
Zero tolerence = Zero common sense = Zero brains to use = Zero reponsibility

...in other news, the drinks were being consumed by three senior citizens and a five-year-old girl from Alabama, all of whom were immediately seized and strip searched as suspected terrorists...

I would have to be pretty well lit to even tolerate the crap one must endure to fly commercial these days.

Slap a fine on them for delaying the flight.

If the food brought into the airport beyond the security checkpoint cannot be vouched for we might as well give up the fight.
The insanity of these rules are obvious.

So American Airlines will deliberately add to departure delays in zealous adherence to an utterly pointless rule. I'll bear that in mind the next time I plan air travel.
I'm flying on sunday, and my plan is to bring an empty bottle on board and fill it with water from the bathroom sink.
I'll make sure to let the flight attendent know before I do it, so they don't think I brought the water on board with me.
My hope is that when I tell her what I am doing, she'll give me a water from the drink tray before the plane takes off.
