Question Hookah Allowed on a plane?

Ok, so I just bought a small hookah while on vacation. It has not been used.

I was wondering if they are allowed to be checked in our luggage while flying through American Airlines. I'll be flying from Los Angeles to Columbus, Ohio.

Any answers would be much appreciated!

I am pretty sure they will check. They check alot nowa days. I heard on the news they are checking carryons to avoid them being overpacked to dodge the extra luggage costs.

Thanks for the reply larrypzlast. I know they will check it, and I know they will find it no matter how I pack it. Hell, I could just ship it to my apartment if needed. I was just wondering if it was illegal to check it in luggage while flying, I searched American Airlines site and it says nothing about stuff like that.

Anyways, I didn't mean to come here and cause trouble or anything... Just came looking for some answers, I look forward to getting to know you all soon.

Thanks.

I would UPS it to myself to be honest that is the best way. I hope this helps.

Yea, unless I get a definitive answer I'm probably going to just mail it to myself. I have some other things to ship to a friend here as well.

Thanks for the input man.

This link doesn't mention hookahs in particular, but by some of the things they mention, it seems that you can probably check it in.

Best solution though, regardless, is probably to ship it.

Dude, I carried my onboard. Going from So-Cal to Japan. It was in a hard case of course, no problems what so ever.
