Based on the list here, where do the boxes of cigar.com matches fall. Do they count as "One book"?


"Strike-anywhere Matches - One book of safety (non-strike anywhere) matches are permitted as carry-on items, but all matches are prohibited in checked baggage."

    Depending on the Airline Carrier: Matches have to be one that can not be a strike anywhere match. It has to be a book or in this case a box set of matches. Just can not be or have a source of ignition. This could be either brought on as a carry on or in checked luggage. As for a lighter it falls into the same category. Example is a Bic Lighter. Zippo's are not permitted unless packaged in a way that makes it safe and has to be checked. http://www.zippo.com/products/zippoaircase.aspx?bhcp=1 Now this is not for all Airlines but I do get to see my fair share of stuff getting taken away. Best bet, leave the nice lighters at home and get some matches where every you might be going. Hope this helped.
