    Yes, they are.

    Which is why they stopped letting people put ecigs and batts in their checked luggage.....nothing like a fire or explosion in the cargo hold to put people's lives at risk, eh?

    Once you are up in the air, there's very little someone can do if something blows up or catches on fire. It's a scary situation.

    While it may not be important to follow rules in Walmart about vaping, I fully support the FAA and DOT regs for anything that applies to being in the air.

    BTW, what makes you think passengers on an enclosed plane want to smell ecig flavorings/vapor for an entire flight, esp. transoceanic?

    Bring patch, gum, lozenges, snus....are you saying we should boycott airlines because vapers can't go a few hours without vaping?

    EMDCCs were very popular when I started vaping. I like the opaque black metal or stainless ones......those see thru ones are plastic and often break at the bottom and leak. Most of these hold 5ml......enough to get you thru the day for sure.

    I haven't flown in 2 winters now? Not since my gram found out about the Lou Gehrig's. Last I flew, I had brought one mod on the plane with me, and I had stashed-away quite a few. Batteries in separate bags, all of them within one mother bag. (to avoid ends touching ends) Multiple mods were packed snug within toilette-paper wrappings, within larger ziplock freezer, of-course. (I took many mods in my large luggage, to show my family, down south, hoping to help them choose to make a switch to a healthier lifestyle) I happily vaped right in-front of the stewardesses with no comments no issues, just very happy, big, toothy smiles & bright cheery eyes. (I'm quite the looker, and I really don't blame them for being a little over-flirty. It's not their fault. It's pheromone- Chemistry, if you will...)

    Now, not the last time I flew, but the time before that, or it may have even been the instance before that one... This must-of been 2010-2011? Yes, around those years.... Well, the Lavatube was popular with ECF members, and I had purchased one to finally kill my urges to save-up for that damn Provari! Well, I stowed my ugly little black LavatubeV1 in my stow-away big-luggage bag... & I believe I had taken an eGo-batt onto the plane with me... I remember the Lavatube was rather new at this point in time. :) Anyhoozers.... I get to my Point Of Destination, and we pick-up our luggage. I'm sick N' tired of vaping off-of my tiny little unregulated eGo batt at 3-point-whatever volts, so I go for my black Lavatube... I unzip that luggage pocket like it's a mission from God, and I wind-up pulling out a Lavatube WITH THE 510-connection/TOP-CAP COMPLETELY DISEMBODIED FROM THE BATTERY-TUBE.... JUST BARELY HANGING ON BY A THREAD! ...NO REALLY.... Just BARELY hanging-on by 1 tiny red baby-tooth-string of a wire... could-of ripped in-half during turbulance if we had experienced any :p I was bewildered... What the heck did they think my precious little 80 dollar (POS) was? A pipe-bomb!? Anyways, I get the top-cap/510 back in position and it vaped just-fine, thank goodness...

    On my way back-home, no-one screwed-with my Lavatube in the least bit. In-fact, I was even able to sneak 3 anole lizards back to New England with me. ;) I let them stay in my Bearded-Dragon tank, but he apparently didn't 'like' them very much.... We'll end the story there. To make a longggggg story a little less long, I'll just say that I've personally never had an issue stowing e-cigs/APVs in my luggage other than invasive handling, and I've personally never had an issue vaping on a plane. If I had-to vape in the bathroom, I would. I'd just be sure to not tip-off the fire-alarm in that hell-box of a bathroom... Otherwise, ohhh I'm pretty sure I'd have two very angry women/men and a airlines marshal on my bum for the rest of the ride. :D I don't know how fun that would be come peanut time.... lol.

    Make a long story short... so long as it's legal, boys n girls, I'll be bringing one on with me... & so long as it's illegal to vape them while in that seat, well, I suggest yall grab that pillow or blanket they give you, and you blow into that thing like nobodies business. Because unlike smoke, if ya blow our vapor into something, it isn't going to stain, and it isn't going to smell (usually) so i'd say go ahead, so-long as you're a stealthy human being, and not someone whose going to ruin it for everybody.

    DOT and FAA are feds. this isn't like gettting caught smoking in your Motel 6 room.

    Aircraft today is getting fitted with both particle and photo-electric and optical beam devices in the bathrooms.....

    Personally, I have no desire to be escorted off a plane by federal agents like this person did:

    No Cookies | Herald Sun

    or questioned by the feds:
    Flight departing Portland International Airport turns around after passenger lights electronic cigarette, becomes disruptive

    and/or detained WHERE you are asked to disembark. (possibly in handcuffs) That means some other country. Also keep in mind that they can come after you for any costs related flight diversions, delayed arrivals or takeoffs, etc.

    No thanks. (not to mention it would seem rather selfish to put a flight at this kind of risk, ruining OTHER PEOPLE's journey?)

    Vaping on airplanes has never been "allowed"

    Sorry Smokers, You Can't Use Electronic Cigarettes On Airplanes

    In February 2011, the AP reported that the Department of Transportation "says the use of smokeless electronic cigarettes is prohibited and plans to issue an official ban."
    But when we asked the DOT if that official ban was ever issued, a spokesperson told us to ask the FAA. The FAA told us it allows U.S. air carriers to make their own policies regarding e-cigarettes, but that "Currently, U.S. air carriers do not allow them since they contradict the no smoking ban as well as produce a propylene glycol emission when smoked."
    Hoping to clear things up, we contacted Airlines for America, the country's largest airline trade association, per the FAA's advice. Their spokesperson told us simply, "In the absence of definitive governmental guidance, airlines are deciding this issue individually."
    So we went to the airlines, and finally got a few answers.
    Here's the bottom line: No, you can't smoke e-cigarettes in airplanes. At least not in planes operated by large American carriers.
    JetBlue says that although electronic cigarettes "may be non-hazardous, JetBlue does NOT allow the USE of them on any of our flights," because the vapor they produce is a "nuisance."
    United bans all "simulated smoking materials," including e-cigs.
    Here's American's response: "American Airlines does not allow electronic cigarettes to be used onboard."
    Delta's answer was similar: "Delta does not permit the use of electronic cigarettes on board any Delta or Delta Connection aircraft."
    In an April 2010 issue of its "Spirit" magazine, Southwest Airlines classified "electronic cigarettes and smoking devices" as "Never Permitted" (via the Global Advisors Smokefree Policy)."

    there have been problems where people have been vaping on planes anyways (by those "adults" who have no regard for others and refuse to control themselves or their personal habits) so they were forced to explicitly ban the use of electronic cigarettes aboard aircraft along with prohibiting passengers and crewmembers from carrying battery-powered portable electronic smoking devices (e.g. e-cigarettes, e-cigs, e-cigars, e-pipes, personal vaporizers, electronic nicotine delivery systems) in checked baggage and prohibit passengers and crewmembers from charging the devices and/or batteries on board the aircraft because of incidents like this

    seriously, we want to be treated like adults and not have a nanny state type government but we act like little kids trying to get away with what ever we can until the nanny comes along and explicitly spanks us
