TSA Changes Rules ---- Smokers Will be Happy.
As of August 4, you smokers can again bring your cigarette lighters in your carryon bags on airplanes. TSA decided they are wasting too much time and money looking for your Bics.

Of course, I wouldn't try this with a real lighter ... something with a lot of chrome or metal. I'm sure the detector would give you away with something like that and it would be such a shame to lose a nice lighter like that.
I always thought this rule about cigarette lighters was dumber than dumb. How much damage can someone do with a tiny BIC lighter. By the time they set a fire to something with it, half the passengers on their row would have overpowered and subdued them.
My feeling has always been that it's bad enough I can't smoke on the airplane and in half the airports in this country. At least let me have my lighter so that as soon as I deplane, I can go outside and enjoy a much-needed smoke.
