So or flying, you can find a link to the TSA site on my page


I didn't see anything about bulbs. I expect that the TSA might fuss more 
over carrying fragile mercury containing bulbs in the passenger 
compartment. You might try calling a bulb manufacturer and ask them that 
question - which leads me to recommend Lowell lighting. Lowell also 
makes compact flourescents that are flicker free, have a High CRI and 
are daylight balanced (no green.) SO I'd recommend giving them a call.

My gut reaction says that there isn't that much of a pressure difference 
and I don't think the bulbs will crack from that - more likely from 
rough handling so pack them well. People have been shipping tungsten 
halogen bubls for a long time in lights with no issues from pressure and 
the tungsten halogen bulbs are under a lot of pressure.
