    USA allows lighters in hand baggage as long as they are not the welder torch kind. Ordinary lighters are OK. These are also allowed in several major European airports that I have traveled through (FRA, AMS). In Delhi lighters are not allowed but you can take matches on board in your hand baggage. I guess it varies from country to country.

    I don’t think they will allow you access to the lounge because your international flight ends there (I think they only invite continuing passengers). As your onward ticket is a separate booking in Economy I think you will be out of luck. Good luck though and let us know what happened?!

    I know about the 100ml rule but most airports will let you transit with alcohol if its sealed in a plastic bag – I have carried such alcohol through European airports in the past. What was suspicious was that they said it would be OK if I had purchased the alcohol in BKK. Also – the Aussies did not seem to have a problem when I asked them about this in great detail in Perth. Finally it was not BKK security that objected – they let me pass through – this was some random check at the gate designed to confiscate alcohol that had passed through BKK because of ‘Australian rules’. Anyway – your reply is appreciated and the lesson is never transit through with alcohol unless its less that 100ml through BKK. I eventually did buy the whisky, again, at Perth’s arrival duty free! Thanks for the response.
