Re: I Feel Safe Already !
Yes, indeed they are. I can attest to this as my cigarette lighter was detected when my purse went through the x-ray machine.
I was taken aside and my purse was inspected thoroughly; my wallet, my checkbook, EVERYTHING!!!
I guess it's inconceivable that people carry lighters because they are smokers.
Apparently, there isn't a problem with matches yet!!
I was told that I could give my lighter to someone outside of the airport or they could throw it away for me.
I chose the later!!
I feel so much safer now!!
