 I fly every week to and from Laguardia airport in NYC. I keep my insulin always
with me but in the same bag as my laptop and other business things. They make
you take to laptop out separately and run the bag thru the x-ray machine...so
far I have had no problems with the insulin after it has been thru many x-ray
scans..hopes this helps
