According to https://www.tsa.gov/travel/security-screening/whatcanibring/items/empty-water-bottle an empty water bottle is permitted in both carry on and checked luggage. There is no mention of any size restriction. (Note: there’s no match when searching ‘water jug’ on the TSA site)


Each airline has different rules. For most airlines that would be too big/heavy for carry on but ok as checked luggage, provided it's properly boxed up.


Arriving in some countries the name on your ticket must agree with the name on your passport. I had terrible trouble in Dubai because there was a spelling error in my first name.
