Out of interest what speed was the film? Did you do a lot of flights with
the film? In the USA a lot of airlines end up needing several flights to
get someone to their destination - I *think* they only x-ray film once when
it is checked in, but they may recheck it. If you went on a long trip
involving flights on several different days, the film would be xrayed each
time, and the effect is cumulative. In the past I have carried the films in
a separate bag and asked the checkin staff to manually inspect it.
