Went out with a crew to join a boat, had to take my capsules out and security kept them, wouldn't let me through security with them, but half of the crew put lifejackets in hold and no problem.

Don't forget every seat on a plane has an inflatable life jacket under it with cylinder attached!!!!! and they are classed as dangerous goods!!!!!!!

Even when i called they were not sure, most places I've checked online says it can be taken but is up to the individual check in clerk ! Important flying with SAS so hopefully won't be too bad
