pebbles083 has indicated that this thread is about USA

I haven't flown in about 12 years and I was wondering if anyone can tell what is allowed and not allowed now since the tighter security. The one thing I really need to find out about is lighters. My husband and I have Zippo lighter's and I have seen different sights say that they are allowed and then sites that say they aren't does anyone know for sure? Thanks to anyone who can help me.

Hi Pebbles,
Things have deffinately changed since Sept. 11/01. You can check out the American Transportation Security Administration website. They have the most updated information about security involving any type of travel. Click on Travelers & Consumers at the top of the page.
Here is the website:
Have a good trip!

Thanks for the web site. Just got word back from Northwest Airlines that Zippo lighters are not acceptable and they have to be clear. Thought I would share this incase someone else like has the same questions.
