Continuing the discussion from Flying with DIY/ Soylent?, but with a slightly different angle.
Has anyone tried flying with mixed Soylent?
There are some exceptions to the 3-1-1 rule, and I’m curious if we can find a way to use them to our advantage. I suspect the success rate would not be 100%, even if we found something inside the rule set… but it might make it possible. Which would rule.
Here are a few possible loopholes:
Medically necessary liquids. This could especially apply to someone with allergies or intolerance… but would probably require footwork. I think likely you’d need to find a doctor willing to write a ‘prescription’ for Soylent as a dietary supplement required for it to be considered medically necessary. No idea if that’s something that could happen.
Travelling with formula. This is a stretch, but… you can travel with liquids meant for infants. There is no requirement to have the infant with you while traveling, either (this is called out on the site). That said… doubtful that this would fly since it’s not for an infant. But it seems a curious exception…
The government gives up this security theater and we can bring on liquids. I do not think #3 will happen soon.
I have no #4. Do you?
A bit of experience: I tried my luck going through TSA PreCheck with a thermos full of Soylent. I got scolded, and attempted to discuss it being medically necessary (while not pushing too hard), and he asked if I had a prescription… which I don’t. I had to dump it out. (It was worth trying since otherwise I had to leave it at home, and it would have spoiled while I was gone).
