If I can fly from New Zealand to Hong Kong to the UK with three bottles of wine in my hand luggage, why is my own zip-lock bag (itself provided by an airline) unsuitable for a tube of toothpaste on a flight from the UK to Switzerland?

Answers on a postcard.

Don't get me started.

It's perfectly fine in the other direction - no trouble at all taking liquids in hand luggage from Geneva to the UK - but unfortunately not the other way. My beer cellar is dwindling at an alarming rate :(
