Is it preferable to place rum runner flasks in the checked in luggage or hand carry on luggage?

Also can soda/juices be carried on in hand luggage?

I asked this question too. The reply was put rum runners in your checked luggage. Soda and juices can be carried on.

This is exactly what I did, and had no problems. I had put sodas in my carry-on and was toting a 12-pack of water. The porters said they could have it delivered with my luggage. Since it was just water, I let them take it and it showed up at the cabin with everything else.

My DH and I just got off the Dawn on 10/19/2008, we used the rumrunners and had them in our checked luggage and they worked great.
