    LOL. This could have also been avoided if he wasn't a total nutjob!

    Please note that this person was eventually charged with fleeing from a car accident involving a police officer as well. This wasn't a vaper... he was insane.

    Have any of the airlines made an official rule that vaping is allowed on board? Like something in writing?

    I fly from ATL to Portland on Delta regularly. I mostly stealth vape but at one bar near my gate they know I am doing it. If it gets crowded in there, I just walk across the hall to the restroom which is nearly empty all the time and vape. I fly on a red eye so if I need to vape, I can do it pretty openly (as long as the flight attendant isn't looking) because everyone is asleep. I have gone to the restroom if I have a strong urge but I always try to be discreet anyway, no matter where I am.
    As far as Atlanta goes, they have smoking lounges and I usually go in there because you can vape openly. I get questions about vaping and like the idea that being in a smoking lounge helps to get new converts!

    I have never had a problem bringing my ecig supplies with me. I just leave everything in my purse and no one has questioned it. I did have one TSA notice it, and he said "who's trying to quit smoking?" I told him it was mine and he actually congratulated me for giving up analogs.

    Going to travel from the US to the Philippines next year. Has anyone had any experience with international flights to the Philippines? More than likely I will be flying into Hong Kong and then on to Manila and then maybe another small connecting flight probably on Cebu Pacific. Thanks in advance for your help.

    Yes, I've flown to the Philippines numerous times, though I've never connected through Hong Kong. Usually I take Delta, connecting through Tokyo to Manila, then take Cebu Pacific to Davao (my wife's home town).

    Although delta's in-flight magazine/guide says there's no smoking "including electronic cigarettes," I've never had any problem vaping on flights, especially when they dim the lights. I just exhale the vapor into the thin blanket they give you. Don't be conspicuous, and you should be okay.

    By the way, my avatar picture was taken at the Manila zoo.

    I wonder also. Really, the only airline I fly is JetBlue, round trip to Ft. Meyers and back. They seems like a pretty laid back, friendly airline, but you never know.

    Maybe that will change after their restructure but they always seem (personal opinion) to be a bit strict.

    I hear that vaping will dehydrate you. I drink a lot of water anyway but I am thirsty all the time.

    I vaped on a transatlantic flight by waiting for the lights to go down & exhaling into a blanket I kept pulled up to my chin. Nobody noticed. In airports, I just sat in unpeopled areas & was discreet.

    In Shannon, I made the mistake of admitting I had liquid on me (they asked travelers if they had any liquid at all on them, even a millimeter -- I had 3 millimeters). Big delay ended with them confiscating my battery. I had more in my checked luggage, but I was cranky on the flight!

    Other times (& in the future), I'm not saying nothing. I pack my Reo with my netbook, phone, & chargers. I did once notice a screener running my bag back & forth through the x-ray & staring intently at my Reo. He let it through, though.

    On a trip to Denver this last August, I had a few bottles (around 10-15ml each) of juice in my 3-1-1 liquid ziploc in my carry-on, and some batts w/Stardusts attached (and liquid inside) in the pocket of my carry-on. I also had a GoGo w/a Stardust attached (w/liquid inside) in my pocket, which I put in the bin at security w/my wallet & cell phone. On the other side, the TSA agent asked what it was, and I told him it was an electronic cigarette. He said that's what he thought it was, and thanked me. At Denver, on the return, with the same situation, I was asked nothing.

    Just depends on the airport & agent's experience, perhaps? :)

    Thank you for bringing reason to this thread. Those who feel they have to push the envelope will be the ones that ruin it for the rest of us.

    I flew Ryan Air from Brussels to Rome a couple years ago and they were selling disposable e-cigs on the flight. And you could use them on the flight as well. Ran about 10 euros for pack of 3.

    Not if you practice... Don't take a massive hit, just enough to hold in so that after 10 seconds there's hardly any smoke exhaled. I wasn't sure if I was allowed so I did this at HR casino in FLA. after 5 hours, I was asked to put it away. I apologized and told him I wasn't aware and that was that. I have a trip to CHI soon and am disappointed to hear AA does not allow them.

    Just wanted to point out I was being 100% honest when I told the floor at the casino I wasn't aware it wasn't allowed. It's not like I was puffing away frequently, once an hour, if that. Now that I know AA does not permit them, I will not attempt to smoke them until I enter an airport. Its not a short flight but it's not worth getting kicked off a plane or getting arrested for. Hope I wasn't sending the wrong message, just had to clear that up.

    I am flying to FL from OH soon and I was wondering if there are any rules on mods? I use a silver bullet and I certainly don't want to take it, only to be told I cannot take it on the flight. Does anyone know any specifics about taking mods and the batteries on flights?

    I actually got turned on to vaping because on a flight from Sacramento to Seattle in January of this year, a guy was vaping in first class as I was boarding the plane. I thought- wow, gotta get one of those. I was surprised to then find out that most airlines won't let you do it. So I just ducked into the lavatory on my next trip. Of course, I ghosted the vapor so as not to risk setting off the smoke alarm.

    Vaping in the restroom at the airport and in the plane is worth not smoking analogs alone!!
