Try not to down-vote, after all everybody commits mistakes !! And a golden rule. High reputation points doesn't mean a level headed person either. I regularly meet a moron(obviously with high reps) on travel.stackexchange.

comment How do I check-in for a flight using an e-ticket?
Take a printout or give the reference number of your booking at the check-in desk. Or check-in online using the airline's website.

comment Can you pass the customs/passport control if you are drunk?
Yes I did observe a UK national, totally drunk, arrived from Bangladesh without his passport, lost it somewhere, and wasn't able to give replies also to the border official. They did a check on his citizenship and allowed him to enter after confirming he was a British national. But allowing you to board while drunk, not so sure.

comment Can you pass the customs/passport control if you are drunk?
In control I would believe yes, but if your breath smells or you walk unsteady then I would think no, considering drunk passengers might create a ruckus while in the air.

Cover the cap, after the bottle has been closed, with a plastic bag tightly with some rubber bands.

comment How can I convincingly dye my skin to blend in in South Asia?
How fair is your skin ? Many Iranians, residing in India, who are quite fair easily pass off as Indians(till they don't speak), probably from the North. If you are pale as from the Nordics or Irish or a generally fair it is next to impossible to pass of as Indian.

comment Clarification on UK Visitor Rules Paragraph 41 and the Schengen cooling off period
This used to happen earlier, people used to take regular family/business visas and stayed major part of a year in UK under this guise. Nowadays people exploiting this are regularly caught at the borders and deported.

comment Which photo type I should select in a photo booth for a Schengen Visa?
Common they mention that in the photo booth. If doubts still persist take the 5 for 5 option.

comment Staying in Europe (Schengen and non-Schengen) for one year
@Relaxed - It seems you are wrong. Checked with a friend who has a 1 year ongoing Schengen visa and it is 90 days on his visa, for a year.

comment Staying in Europe (Schengen and non-Schengen) for one year
Nope maximum 90 days in total in 365(366) days. Else what is stopping people from using this visa as an illegal immigration ploy.

comment We are having a stop over for a little less than 24hours in Mumbai, do we need a visa?
@damryfbfnetsi - Not necessarily that all people will get into trouble with children. You should make it clear it in your comment that it is more relevant for short stay in terminals and not for all cases.

comment Where can I buy egg and chips near Glasgow Central?
There is a Burger King where you can have a veg burger, tried myself. You would just need to get out of the station. There are loads of eateries on either side of the roads when you get out of the station. I think there is awesome cake/chocolate(not sure) shop near the exit gates in the station, towards platform 14/15.

comment Indian Passport first page ripped - is this considered 'damaged'?
Most of the security features, which passport forensic investigators check, aren't on the pages but on the laminated first and last pages of the passport. If they aren't tampered with, you will go through. But the passport officer may question you about the torn page.

comment Insurance against flight delays
@JoErNanO - Yes it seems so. I had taken the cheapest one(cost me £27 for a year) available so the harsh conditions. The more you pay more friendlier the insurance conditions are.
