Yes, it will be scanned - I read on another post that a passenger had to
go to the Purser's office as there was a "questionable object" in her bags.
It turned out to be her GPS (which was acceptable) but she mentioned
that there was a "pile of at least 50 irons/steamers on the floor". So I
quess it's your call whether you want to chance having it confiscated or not. Maybe carrying it in your carry-on might work ??
