I do not fly out of country so can't comment on that, however I do carry a letter from my doctor stating that I am Celiac and need to carry my own food etc.  I have had to use it twice when my food amount was questioned.

The only one I would worry about would be a shared pasta pan.  You know how that pasta starch can stick and be difficult to clean.  And for me it's probably more of a "head case" thing.  lol    A good scrub and throw through the dishwasher.  You'll be fine.
