    Today’s the first time that I’m taking an airplane since I started vaping, right now I’m vaping away in the smoker’s lounge. It smells disgusting in here, but I feel gooooood! :)

    Good for you. I try to avoid those rooms as they really stink. Tried to avoid them for the same reason even when I smoked. They are nasty.

    I wonder if IAH (Houston) or MCO (Orlando) have smoking lounges. I will be making that trip soon.

    Not as roomy, but usually in every US airport. The toilet stall and a small cloud draw. Still less nasty than those smoke rooms.

    Last time I flew I brought along my old Halo set up...ego battery with a carto, filled with unflavored.
    Vaped sitting in the open terminal, held the vapor in, none on the exale...:thumb:

    Speaking of flying anyone ever have a problem with rebuild materials in their checked bag? Spools of wire, wire cutters, scissors, etc.? The wife is concerned that they may consider the wire and cutters "bomb making materials". I have reassured her they won't but she still seems a bit concerned. Also I DIY juice, will they flag nic juice that is not labeled from a company?

    What those lounges need, is a few serious cloud chasers to freshen it up...:lol:

    No problems in checked bags.
    Don't think you can carry scissors and wire cutters in carry on.
    No problem with juice in checked bag. Follow the liquid limits, if in carry on. Dosen't matter if it's unlabeled.
    This is for domestic flights.

    i really like the being in a cloud of exhaled cigarette smoke (not the lingering stench). I still find it really... attractive.

    Yeah me to. Guess for some it will always do. I like it when it happens, but more proud of myself that it don't attract me towards a smoke anymore...:thumb:

    It’s funny you wrote that: there was this guy coming in, right after I wrote my post, with a big, fat, pen-like e-cig, and he started blowing enormous clouds. I mean, really as big as they can get, it literally filled the half the room for a few seconds every time. Guys like this give us vapers a bad name, I was almost ashamed being one at that moment, there was nothing funny about it. Plus, this was in an Asian airport, that’s especially stupid, since vaping is illegal in many Asian countries: that won’t help to convince people that it’s harmless...

    Scissors and wire cutters are ok in the checked bag, but not in the cabin (although, I had a small pair of scissors in my cabin bag, they let it pass for my first flight, but took it away when I had to change planes. But you can’t count on it). The juice bottles have to be put in transparent, sealed bags, just like other liquids (shower gel, toothpaste, deodorant), and it must be a bottle of max. 150 ml. No idea if unlabeled juice could be a problem, if you’re in the USA, you could probably check on the TSA website.
    Important: for international travel, always check the legal status of e-cigs not only for your destination, but also for your layovers, if there any. If it’s legal where you’re going, but not in between, ask if your checked luggage is going to be unloaded or not. If not, I’d put in the checked luggage and take it with me anyway.

    Yep I recently went to upstate new York and I think it was in Washington where we had a layover. They had a smokers room and we decided to have a vape, I took one vape , walked out and almost threw up. It was so disgusting and I definitely won't be doing that again

    It's hit or miss. Most times its never an issue , but they may snag your scissors. Just recently I went thru and no issues with the scissors (I have a tiny tiny pair to trim wicks), but they snagged my corkscrew
