Airline crew en route England to Australia ( no prizes for guessing which Airline )

3 or 4 day stop in Karachi without booze, so bought a roll of hose pipe in London and equipped it with screw caps on each end, then en route to Karachi filled it with company gin. Trouble was - they had to fill it to avoid air bubbles showing and giving the game away, and they hadn't reckoned on how much gin it needed, which added to the weight to be nonchalantly thrown over the shoulder of the crew member tasked with getting it through customs.

The subterfuge worked, but they had to drink a lot of gin. No problem.
