Always a good idea (hindsight IS 20/20 right?) to carry back-up lantus, novolog and syringes. I even try to keep 10+ extra syringes around in case the pump fails when I'm out and I have to pull insulin from a cartridge - that happened to us once at a pool party and was a big ugh.
Glad they came through for you. It is interesting that none of the pods you brought worked - but you'd think if going through x-ray/scanning did that there would be more reports of it - unless it was some sort of new scanner we haven't heard much about.
