Oddly enough I wasn't able to find any information on this online, I'll continue to search in case I'm able to find something. Meanwhile, I'll tell you the general rules. As you would expect, it is entirely dependent on the policy of the country in which the airline is registered. Considering that, since the drinking age in Iceland is 20, the drinking age ...

The rules are explained on the official EU website. It sometimes difficult to understand how they apply to a given situation but the page should be authoritative.

I just spoke to my Romanian friend, who confirmed that this is technically legal. Having said that, it's not the safest thing ever, as Romania is known for high crime/theft rate against campers.

The Saudis are less concerned about anti-"religious" books per se, than about anti-Muslim books. The greatest danger lies with anything that is anti-Mohammed, or anti-Islam, or even anti-clergy (religious men).

The very existence of an airport transit area is a direct result of the country's laws. What can or cannot happen is entirely up to that country.
