This is excellent advice. When I flew back to Brazil
with an Engel fridge as luggage, I attached a printed copy of the FAA regulations
on transporting gasses (clearly showing the Engel was safe). The box was opened in both Canada
and the US (I wasn't present as the luggage was checked through to Brazil) and it was shipped on to the destination
. I think the FAA regulations
attached was the reason.
