Hi again, bogangles, and thanks for this post and question - it is a good one. I see you posted something similar elsewhere on our COPD.net community website for which I was able to provide an answer. For ease of reference, that post can be accessed here, and is from about 6 days ago: https://copd.net/members/bogangles/status/117283#upsr-89824. For your convenience, and to make certain you are able to review the conversation, I will copy my comment here, in quotes: "Hi bogangles - as it turns out, there have been several members in our community who have taken flights and been able to use portable oxygen (either a portable oxygen concentrator or, a small cylinder of oxygen). I am hopeful they will see your post/inquiry and chime in by sharing their personal experiences. You may want to consider starting your own forum to ask this question. The question, in it's own forum, will garner more attention than it will here.
If you so choose, you can access the forum section here: https://copd.net/forums.
Are you planning on taking a trip in an airplane? Are you currently using supplemental oxygen throughout the day and night? If we can assist you in any way, please let me or any other moderator / team member know.
Warm regards, Leon (site moderator COPD.net)" I also see that my colleague, , has also provided a reply to your question about flying with a supply of oxygen. I do hope you have an opportunity to look over her reply - she has included several related references for your consideration. I do hope you find this information is helpful for your concerns. Wishing you well,
