Am I correct in assuming that these come under the prohibited items but how many people actually comply? People I have spoken to insist they will be taking there regular deodorant spray with them and they will be putting in their hold luggage as they do every flight.
Is it dangerous or are items such as Lighter refills and portable cooker canisters just a threat.
I've looked to see if this has been raised before but found nothing under aerosol.

Only those aerosol cans that contain personal care products (deodorant, shaving cream, some hair sparys) are allowed in any luggage as far as I know. 'Canned air' (for cleaning electronics) may be allowed too, but may be a judgment call. Many airlines, especially BA, seem to make it very clear as to what can be in luggage as to products in cans.

Many spray cans no longer contain harmful CFCs. There was an episode of either Airline or Airport where a kid wanted to bring a basketball on board, but they were not sure if it would pop. In the end, the kid was able to bring it along.

Yeah most if not all types of aerosol cans are safe, as said size is a different matter. Coming back from Tucson on vacation this year my mom was stopped at security when they saw the shape of the can in the xray of her bag. The screener wasn't sure of the size limitations so a supervisor was called over, and he said that anything up to 32oz is okay; mind you this was a can of Glade, not exactly a necessity ...well to some people.
