how much alcohol you can carry in your luggage

Hello! How can I buy a piece of luggage, since my ticket includes only carry-on luggage?

Prompt, bought plane tickets Oslo-Billund, mail sent tickets, but I accidentally deleted. I have a letter code (which I wrote when buying), I can once again get the ticket?

I do not think that a small cost can offset the disadvantage of the loss of luggage, lack of normal maintenance and flight conditions. I did not like very negative impression.

Flight heavily detained as a result of late for a connecting plane. I asked the representative of the airline, which quickly made a decision on this issue and gave me a ticket with a later flight, for which I am truly grateful to him.

There is a situation when the company's flight was a huge turn, scary even imagine by the number of days people could fly. Well at least I decided at that time to buy tickets to the other firm. Now even seeing the announcement of huge discounts, very carefully treat them.

Flew this airline several times, and the flight is always delayed at least 2 hours, if it comes to carry while in tickets once on later that passengers do not have to crowd in the airport waiting for an explanation from the representative, who, by the way, is not it easy to find - it is hiding something? Moreover, these flights are a great success. So urgent request, you adjust, finally the system crashes, this lawlessness is not in any airline.

Flied Lufthansa in the following direction Copenhagen-Munich-Moscow. Copenhagen did not find the Lufthasa registration desk, only SAS was written on the stands. I noticed the Departure index, went there and rested on the conveyor and the frame. Not knowing that this is the entrance to the sterile zone, I began to pass control. There was a household knife in my backpack. Finding this, the servant began to yell at me. I tried to say that I wanted to put my backpack in my luggage, but I just got lost. She continued to yell, completely without listening to me. Then she took out a box of cardboard with the inscription SAS, which she sent in the direction of the SAS racks. To get there it is possible minutes for 15, then as much back and yes even repeated control, I had to abandon the knife. But despite this, the servant carried my backpack for a re-scan. Finding nothing, I finally went to the sterile zone. As a result, all things had to be taken with them to the plane, and then in Munich three hours everywhere with them to drag. And all because SAS - the main one at the airport in Copenhagen, just too lazy to indicate on the racks information for customers of other airlines.
