Lighters Allowed Back on Planes

If you’re a frequent flyer, listen up. There’s a change in carry-on rules coming soon.

Starting next month, small cigarette lighters will be allowed back on airplanes.

They were banned in 2001 after shoe bomber, Richard Reid tried to ignite a bomb and blow up a plane.

The Transportation Authority said collecting lighters is a waste of time when they could be looking for bomb parts.
