ASK: traveling with airbag?

just a quick question

does anyone here have experienced (by plane) hand-carry airbag on board?

I'm looking forward to carry an airbag internationally. Will they let me put those on my hand-carry bag / should I put those on baggage?
I know this thing will not work if it's not connected to the sensor but just want to anticipate if some strict company rules applied.

looking forward to hear from you guys

cheers

If its a functioning airbag, then you will not be allowed to take it either on carryon or checked baggage.

Airbags have explosives, which is not allowed in the aircraft.

thanks guys for the reply
it is a functioning airbag but you know what I meant, the airbag will not explode if it's not connected right? Still wondering though

I think it costs a lot and not worth it?
my estimation is the shipping cost will be the same price as used airbag?
try to figure it out now

I would definitely stay away from a used airbag.
