Just wanted to find out if anyone has had the same problem as us and why? We came back from Thailand a couple of days ago flying Virgin. At Phuket airport I tried to buy my duty free alcohol to take back to Peth (direct flight). I had a couple of bottles in my basket and a sales staff member approached me and asked where I was going. When I said Australia, he said sorry....Australians can't buy more than 100ml of alcohol. I laughed as thought he had made a mistake. Asked why and didn't get a real answer. I then asked several other staff and got the same answer. I even asked a virgin staff member that was in the store. She had no idea about this rule either. In the end they let her purchase 2 ltrs only because she was crew. Has anyone heard about this new rule? I wasn't very happy about it and don't know who to complain too? The airport? Thailand customs? Virgin?
