I was just wondering (having googled this and come up with one or two sort of definite answers but they weren't aviation websites) if you are allowed to pack aerosol deodorant (such as Lynx) even though it's flammable? Of course this I'll be packing it into a checked in bag as I can't be bothered taking liquids out in a plastic bag going through security. Also, does it make any difference that this flight is US bound (BOS)?

There is no issue with carrying aerosols, so long at they have their caps on (at least that's what I've always been told in Australia). Travelling domestically here, you can take aerosols in your hand luggage as well (and it's easy because there are no LAGS restrictions for domestic flights).

I can't speak for other airlines, but Delta Air Lines' policy bans all aerosols in checked baggage (as they are considered "dangerous goods"), except for those used for health and beauty purposes, such as hairspray, deodorant, and shaving cream.
I guess they consider it to be an acceptable risk, so as not to overly inconvenience people.
BTW: Delta Connection carriers do not carry any dangerous goods, except COMAT (company materials) on a few of the carriers.
Good bye, US Airways. You will always hold a special place in my heart!
