  • Please check out this video.  A woman flying from L.A. to Phoenix on a weekly basis was given a lot of hassle back in February for bringing her breast milk onboard as a carry-on.  I don't know if things have changed since then or not, but better to know now than later.  If you still decided to do this, please be sure to go through security at LEAST two hours ahead of time.  This woman may have been running late and went through security about 45 minutes before her flight was scheduled to take off.

  • ok not a solution for you but i laughed when i read your title of the post because i imagined some magic machine that flies & runs on breastmilk...sorry...carry on...

    Oh & you should check the website for your airline for that info. Also the FAA website has lots of helpful FAQ's.

  • You may have to ship it. You can most likely check it, and since it's cold as hell at altitude it should keep.
