I was in transit connecting in DOH from DEL to JFK. I bought a bottle of duty free alcohol in DEL and was assured that I could carry this through to JFK while in transit at DOH provided the STEB bag remained sealed. When you arrive at DOH and enter the main transit area where all the duty free shops are you have go through security and there was no problem with the bottle of alcohol. However at the boarding gate to JFK, there is another security check, here they did not allow the bottle to be carried on the plane as hand luggage, only choice was to leave the bottle behind or check the bag in. So be careful with duty free in transit on flights to the US.
