Thread: Customs

  1. #1

    Customs

    So I just came back from Mexico last night, and on my return flight I learned that if returning from Cancun and then getting a connecting flight, you no longer have to collect you luggage before going through customs. They just transfer it from plane to plane and I collect it in the non-secure area when I reached my final destination. I am not too sure when that changed, but wish I had known before hand. I would have came back with a few months worth of growth hormone! LOL. Oh well, there will always be a next time.

    That is crazy

    I still wouldn't risk it though.

    Baggage handler may have messed up.

    When working at Westjet I recall an employee making the mistake of dropping off bags from an international flight off on the domestic carousel which bypasses customs.

    West jet said it was new. Also depends on where you are arriving from. For example another traveller was arriving from LAX, needed to collect bags first. I was unsure and didnt want to leave my luggage behind so i made sure i asked about four people including west jet employees and airport security.

    Come to think of it I don't remember having to grab my luggage when I went thru customs in Toronto either last year when I was taking a connector back to Kingston.
    Its not like customs looks anyways. Shit I could have came back with whatever I wanted this year form Mexico.
    Same as when I cross the border after picking up stuff for work. I get it prebrokered and they have never once checked to see if that was what I really had in my vehicle. And I go across a couple dozen times a year. Shit one time when they were redoing the customs office, I was supposed to go in to the building to get it stamped, but I kept driving because I was confused and got in shit about 3 weeks later and had to go back and get it stamped then, lol.

    Interesting...

    We just got back the other day, direct, and bags were in pre custom pickup as usual. CBSA were super casual and didn't ask anything, and I was carrying a bag literally clanging with Tequila bottles.

    He probably just felt bad for us and wanted to get us through cuz it was late, we were bagged, and our kids had gone to Plaid running all over the place (past ludicrous speed).

    My last trip back from Miami I had a connecting flight home and didn't have to collect my luggage. I distinctly remember having to the time before that as well and thought it strange. Bags were waiting for me on the cart when I got home.

    I had a bottle of tequila break in my luggage. Thank god it was just the cheap shit I got for free from the resort that I was going to give to the guy that watched my house. Well he didn’t deserve it because some goof played in my hot tub and left the fucking lid up. Thank god it didn’t freeze.
    That was an extra bottle I was going to accidentally have forgotten about unless customs caught me, lol.

    I didn’t gain any weight on holidays either, all inclusive as well. But I did get smoother, fuck, when I first got their I was the leanest most muscular older dude, lol. Then some other ripped older dude showed up after I had softened up, lol. But it was ok, his gut stuck out more .

    Funny how guys size each other up on vacation. I could see a couple guys sizing me up there, and I was doing it too.

    I didn't think id lose weight though. I was wrapping up a bulker, and the morning we left I pinned the last of my Deca and 800 test to blast the week off. I worked out there, didn't drink, and ate a ton! All the cardio chasing my kids must have done it.

    And ya, I had a bottle blow up on me years ago. Now I only buy in duty free so I can carry it on to the plane.
