We calculated that the pressure in the can exceeded 40PSI.
Therefore it was at least 4 times sea level pressure.
Then figure out the pressure present in a can when carried in the unpressurized cargo hold of a commercial aircraft at 30,000 feet, where most of those fly! I too would suggest buying the drinks at the port city where embarking. Seems much safer to me.
