Have you seen Nathan Congdon's article on the main page ? http://www.cs.berkeley.edu/~qtluong/photography/lf/travel/lftravel.html

You might want to try using a small, carry-on-friendly bag to carry the valuable stuff (the camera and the lenses) and get a Pelican case to check the rest (film, holders, tripod, backpack) in.That wat if they loose the checked bag you've still got the camera.

Always carry your film on the plane, never put it in checked baggage. Checked baggage is subjected to a much higher x-ray dosage than the carry-on. Film is much more likely to be fogged in the cargo hold.
