I'm going to whistler shortly and was planning to take my Avi Bag with me. Flying with Lufthansa (who don't seem keen to respond to me)

I have heard that they can't refill Carbon Canisters over there, only steel ones... Can i travel with a full canister?

Does anyone have any up to date info on what is allowed and where it has to be packed.

This link below has useful info. key points: -

It is allowed in checked in baggage only (without emptying).
Print and carry the IATA table 23A 2014 pdf at the foot of the post.
Not allowed on USA internal flights (IATA regs cover all international flights, so fully domestic flights are governed by indiviadual country regulations.
