I was a little “peckish” and needed a treat. The flight attendant brought me a bag of Doritos. They were round in shape because of the lack of air pressure in the plane and the expansion of the air that was placed in the Doritos bag at ground level turned the Doritos back into one of those mylar balloons. It caused me to think of the air cells in the 290 eggs I have in the golf bag. That air is placing pressure on the membranes, separating the external and internal membranes, causing the deformed, saddle type air cells so familiar to the recipient of shipped eggs.
I had never thought about the air pressure in planes affecting the eggs, but that makes perfect sense!
By the way, I've been reading this thread in secret. I just never posted before. You are an amazing writer Oz!
