That is against the law, but I can't say that no one does it.
Same goes the other way, someone from here can't buy the gas to resell it on the other side of the border, then again, do everyone complies with the law?
we boarded an hour and a half late, and took off like 2 hrs late.
When we were finally on the plane, the captain was talking to us saying how there was techincal difficulties with the plane despite it being a new one. And it was a problem with the water system. So they could either cancel the flight or empty the plane from water.
soooo they drained the plane from (drinking/toilet) water, and then got catering companies to deliver loooooads of bottles of water to the plane (which was a pain in the ass because it was a Jewish holiday so ppl werent working at this time)
anyway, so if u wanted to use the toilets on the plane, you had to empty half a bottle of water into it and then flush it looool.
Such a random problem to have, made me laugh.
