That rule about only allowing 100 millilitres of liquid through security as you board your flight can be annoying.

So is there a creative way to dispose of an opened 1.75-litre bottle of vodka you have ''fogotten" to remove from your handbag?

One woman, flying out of at Dulles International Airport in Washington DC on a 7.30am service, decided on a creative disposal method - she took a great swig of the vodka, and offered the bottle to other passengers to help her out.

The security officials weren't happy, but a fellow passenger saw the situation developing and shared it with the world on Facebook with this post:

'Woman at Dulles security line, unable to carry her plastic handle of Smirnoff vodka through security, is currently drinking it in line and offering swigs to other passengers. It's 7:30am and TSA is not amused.'

Have you had this problem boarding your flight? What was your solution?
