    Not on my carry-on of course, but i was wondering if someone more intelligent myself could tell me:
    -whether or not the depressureized cabin of the plane will make my cans pop?
    -whether or not the cans themselves or on a hot list of somesort for baggage inspection?
    Those were the only reasons i could think of not too, but if anyone could add some input.

    Seriously, with the way security is these days, they'd probably x-ray those cans in your bag, freak out, put it in a blast cage and blow your suitcase up "just to be safe"

    Don't take the risk your cans won't pop open and saturate your clothing in mid flight.

    "Well, I was going to buy myself two weeks of sex here in thailand but now it looks like I'll be replacing all my clothing instead! Woooo!"



    But yeah duder, just leave the paint at home. Do a little research on where you are going and just buy some gear when you get there

    they will not pop open.

    but.
    if the security is screening checked bags with xray, and a lot of airports do now, they might see the cans and look in the bag
    then you'd play dumb and they'd probably throw the cans away
    (though it could be more serious)

    it is absolutely easier to buy paint once you get there, unless you only want to take one or two special cans.

    and YES AEROSOL CANS HAVE BEEN SPECIFICALLY BANNED FROM AIRPLANES< CARRY ON OR OTHERWISE
    AND ESPECIALLY THOSE LIKE SPRAYPAINT< WHICH CONTAIN A FLAMMABLE SOLVENT!

    how amusing it is that taking has been spelt wrong in the thread title, so wrong in fact that a hyphen has been added, ho ho ho.

    Spray paint on airplanes

    What's the rule at the airport?
    I'm guessing banned from airplane cabins, but what about checked baggage?

    I have about 60 cans I want to take.
