Which is why I didn't want to do baggage... I fly a lot, and I remember it being -16' F in the air when the ground was 36' F. Sure it was December, but...
The paper towel thing was hopefully more of a really sour joke.... Long time ago, betta fish used to be shipped to pet stores directly from Thailand, and they'd all be wrapped in wet newspaper. Still alive... but of course that's been changed as it's really inhumane. Sure the paper towel thing is inhumane, but I figured it's better to do that for 5 minutes at most than the days the bettas suffered from Thailand to USA stores. : x
I know my airport very well... It's a small airport. Only four gates. Right after security, there's a store that sells stuff, water bottles included.
I ask for a bottle that hasn't been refrigerated yet (done that before), buy it, put conditioner in, and dump him in.
Once I get him through security at me home airport, I won't have to go through anyone else as far as having him.
Overnighting him to Cali... was an idea, but I'm honestly seriously short on cash. Sure I've got about a month and a half to get money for it... mostly I need to get bills paid than anything, though.
Basically I'm saying that I'm being cheap about it.
As a note, I can't see how they'd make me dump out his water and carry him through with me. I'll look crazy if they do let me... I won't care, but blah... it's so horrible to.
Seeing as it's a small airport, I might just ask them to test the water to make sure it's water, and see how it goes from there?
And yeah, as I said... get the largest amound of liquid I can carry, see if that'll work.... I think it's 6 oz. Possibly about the same amount as Canada?
