Aerosol deodorant allowed?
hey guys I’m sure the answer is pretty simple, but here’s the background. I’m flying out of LAX Terminal 7 on UA to Chicago tomorrow. Whenever I’ve traveled in the US, or even out of the country, I’ve always had stick deodorant which of course is not an issue. But I’m going to have aerosol deodorant this time around so is that allowed? I’m looking at the labels right now and it’s 3.8 oz which worries me a little because I believe the limit was 3.4. I don’t have any checked bags so this is going straight through carry on. Also the label does have flammable on it. So if the answer is going to have no in it, then I need to run to walmart tomorrow and change some things before my flight since I fly to Chicago tomorrow, then I come back and fly out to India on wednesday. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks guys!
In case you wanted the specific details if you wanted to google it, its Degree men’s motion sense deodorant spray “cool rush” scent. Thanks again as always!
Limit is 3 ounces so I’d run grab a stick. You can take aerosols on board but it always makes me a little nervous to do so though I know lots of women who pack aerosol hairspray.

Yeah I knew they always became a little iffy with pressurized aerosol containers. Alright but sounds good. I’ll head over to Walmart in a bit and grab a stick. Thank you very much mid south. Cheers!
It’s very YMMV. I just assume that I have high chance of it getting taken away. Usually precheck lines won’t take it away but internationally or non-precheck lines are more strict.

Ok so Gaurav, I am prechecked on this first trip. And I just found out yesterday that Emirates participates in tsa pre check so ill have access to that line as well at TBIT, but of course the general lines at TBIT don’t have tsa pre-check, so I’ll use the secret connecting flight checkpoint on the arrivals level for that which has tsa precheck. I never knew that EK participated. Does that mean that the restriction changes on aerosols like the one I have or am I still at a loss here? Thanks guys.
The rules/restrictions don’t change. It’s just how it’s applied in practice.

No, of course, the rules won’t change, but I was trying to hint at if I could pull some strings with TBIT TSA. They always seem to be in a little bit of a better and happier mood than the typical TSA agents in the rest of the normal US Carrier terminals 😉
