EU airport eases on liquid restrictions

As you all know the annoyances of buying something for someone at a Duty Free shop outside of EU and getting it confiscated, regardless the fact that the item such as perfume, bottle of liquor was bought in a Duty-Free shop in the first place!

So the good news:

The European Commission said yesterday that it expects to announce this autumn which airports will be exempted from having the goods they sell confiscated.

But the bad news is:

Likely initial contenders are the US, Singapore and Russia.

This is just so stupid, isn't it?
