No, it's flammable.
Yes. They come under the dangerous goods restictions - the restriction being that they can be in containers no larger than 2 litres. Officially, they are permitted in checked or hand baggage but of course they would fall foul of the current liquids policy in hand luggage.
Sorry, didn`t word that very clearly. If they were in containers of 2 litres they would fall foul of liquids policy.
That does surprise me, although I couldn't see anything specific about it on the airline website about controlled items.
It wouldn`t be on an airline website. It`s iCAO stuff. There`s shedloads of duty free alcohol on board most passenger aircraft.
Another interesting fact is that (if it wasn`t for the current liquids policy) ICAO laws say that you can take up to 5 litres of booze onto a flight. I have done that myself when I brought back a 5 ltr wine box from S Africa.
