As for the flammables, I'm not surprized, those are
prohibited on all forms of public transportation, even
tow trucks do not carry gas you need to make a special
call for it. Tools like ice axes should be alright in
checked baggage as long as the head is covered
securely, with a sheath, and it is not accessable;
basicly shoved in the pack.
