Reply To: Transiting with alcohol at Dubai

I flew DBX to SYD last month on QF. Duty free is taken from you at the gate and stowed underneath. Didn’t appear at SYD and took a week and a number of phone calls to arrive. The bottles were intact but the box was badly damaged.

I’d order online and collect on arrival in SYD. The grief involved in a DBX purchase isn’t worth the marginal savings.
