No, but then they dont sell pure alcohol onboard :) (or do they, let
me know!! would make 14hr flights MUCH more interesting!)
Basically, its a flammable fuel, in a larger pot (and i'd assume more
combustable) than normal lighters!

HOWEVER! I take it back, i've had a look here
and here

Seems theyre ok for use on planes, and theyve recently allowed them to
be exported to other countries they trust.. but then the second
article says another organisation doesnt want them on planes, blah
bureaucracy blah :/
