Thread: Solid Fuel in baggage ?

    Default Solid Fuel in baggage ?

    Hi,

    Anyone have any experience in carrying Solid Fuel (reasonable qty) in check-in baggage ?

    Most airline do not allow Inflammable Solids.
    Not sure if Solid Fuel is considered as Inflammable Solids,
    but after some goggling, seems like the definition of Inflammable Solid is
    [Inflammable Solids ; Substances Liable to Spontaneous Combustion ; Substances Which, on Contact with Water, Emit Inflammable Gases]

    I dont think Solid Fuel combust spontaneously or emit gases on contact with water.


    Thanks

    Call the airline and ask. But I am 100% they will NOT allow it, it would be considered hazardous goods.

    Based on BA website, they ban "flammable solids".

    Do note that they allow camping stoves and fuel containers but require prior notification.

    Use a shipping company to get this stuff from A to B. A passenger flight is not meant to carry such stuffs, for a good reason.

    • Generally, you must not take on board:
    • Firearms of any type including replicas or toys
    • Explosives including fireworks, flares, toy gun caps
    • Gases including compressed gas cylinders, tear gas, mace, pepper sprays, household aerosols
    • Flammable materials including petrol, lighter fuel, paint, thinners, non-safety matches, fire lighters, flammable glue

    Tr\y to explain that your solid fuel does not fall under 'flammable materials'

    It is not allowed. You can always try your luck, of course. At best you have to discard it, at worst, you are detained by the police and offloaded by the airline. I'd just get them when I get to my destination if I were you. L

    obviously it's not allowed! why need to take risk? Think of the safety of yourself and others that sharing the same plane with you.
    make sense..

    Hello,

    Thanks for the kind inputs.

    For the humorous one, have a laught yourself too
    Not likely to end up in Guantanamo, at most i will post a pix of the weather from Drapchi Prison.

    I have tried hand-carry flammable aerosol from Changi (last-min customer request),
    Actually was hoping to get it confiscated, the guard just wave me on after the X-ray.

    Anyway, Beach Road aunty con me $1.50 from her deceitful (or innocent) assurance.

    Regardless, thanks all.

    Please always announce which flight you will be on so everyone can avoid the same flight. Thank you.

    Do note that in event of anything catching fire up there, a cremation burial is usually not needed. Solid fuel helps.

    There is no way for any airline/airport to do a 100% check but why is it so hard not to bring along the solid fuel, don't people realise that such actions will endanger everyone's life?

    That is why there are accidents... People think they are smart enough to beat the system with absolute no regards to other people's safety and well being.
