But it's the good cholesterol. At least that is what this week's medical journals are saying.

I think it is easier just to take boiling water and buy the eggs when you get there. Assuming the boiling water is less than 3 oz.

Eggs are considered healty.. they pack a lot of protein that keeps a person full.. with only 80 calories. the amount of cholesterol in an egg a day is now considered safe for most folks who do not have other health issues. Do the reading..eggs are considered healthy by almost any nutrionist now..

Bacon on the other hand will never make the " we made a mistake and its healthy after all " list.. sigh..

Well there's nothing wrong with eggs in moderation - but not for eating every day - any more than red meat - esp given the huge number of people whose cholesterol levels are high or even marginal.

I love eggs, espacially the ones the local chickens produce around here with the rich yellow yolks. And I eat hard-boiled eggs with some frequency. But do I think of it the as a"healthy breakfast?" Not necessarily., I have no cholesterol problem but I eat an egg about 3 tines a week with no effect. I do love hard-boiled eggs, so I can relate to the Op's desire to bring some on a trip, but I don't think it's the best choice. They do smell. Other passengers might be offended.

There are so many other things you can pack for a "healthy breakfast," ...sliced turkey or chicken, salad, oats, muesli, yoghurt, cheese.....

No one needs to be assaulted with the smell of boiled eggs next to a passenger on an airlineto France.

Hard boiled eggs are OK.
Jam spread on bread is OK but not a jar of it carried-on (in checked luggage is OK).
Bread is OK.

What's allowable by the airlines and customs, is different than what's polite on a place (stinky eggs).

What's so bad about eggs? I think bananas and oranges would be worse.

maybe I am unique but the smell of hard boiled eggs even in my fridge are really potent and in a contained environment downright offensive. I find oranges rather refreshing and bananas neutral...just my take on it.

My husband once brought tuna salad sandwiches on the plane. He was leaning across me to yak to the gentleman on my other side, the whole flight to Cuba. The only thing I could smell was tuna! Yuck!

So now we have a no tuna, no salmon, no egg rule for the plane. Personally, I adore the fresh clean aroma of oranges.

Oranges are fine in small doses, but the smell is too strong for a flight.

Lois, you are not unique for being put off by the smell of hard boiled eggs. I have always thought that hard boiled eggs smell like a fart, therefore I cannot stay in the room when someone starts peeling a hard boiled egg. I would rather sit by someone eating spoiled sardines.

Mind you, I am not suggesting that to the OP.

just mentioned this amusing topic to my daughter and she loves hard boiled eggs but conceded that they smell...they contain sulfer...just not something to be dealing with on a plane.
