I agree with Eyal. I only ever put enough prescription meds in my carry-on
as is needed for the trip. Then again, needles aren't very welcome in carry
on luggage. :-D
BTW - bit of plane info from a plane geek who's grown up around very large
planes - aft cargo bays on most passenger jets have pressurised and
temperature controlled environments, on Boeings all holds are pressurised
(not sure about temp control though) and it's generally only a little
colder than the cabin (which would suit me as it's always too blooming
hot). Otherwise all those pets being transported in the hold would die.
I'm guessing delicate goods also go in the pressurised cargo bay - so you
could perhaps flag delicate medications as such.
