the kind of explosives which could be detonated by a lighter are pretty weak.

Thermite? Nitroglycerine?
nitroglycerine will detonate if you drop it, and besides those are exactly the kinds of explosives police sniffer dogs are trained to detect

only an idiot would take Nitroglycerin, just imagine how obvious it would be considering how careful he would have to be.

thermite could be used to make a rather large hole in the floor of the plane but it is very susceptible to sniffer dogs and you need a rather large amount of it.
Never mind your own business.

That wasn't to point. You said that they wouldn't use them because they were weak, not becasue they were detectable.
