How long can they continue the ban? The inconvenience to passengers, while justifiable in the short term, is really unenforcible, especially for long haul. Even if passenger pressure does little the duty free stores will complain loudly at loss of sales and consequently loss of revenue to the airport operators.

"Airline travellers in the U.S. and Britain are prohibited from bringing all gels and liquids on board. A serious hit to the big business of duty-free. “$27 billion is the size of the global industry,” said James Featherstone, Editor of Duty Free News International. "That’s something that’s approaching what you see at a pretty substantial western European city in terms of retail sales annually."
