Fascinating reading here. Any other countries that give film photographers a problem? Just to repeat, I had no issues at all in Japan and Hong Kong. They were very friendly.
Actually, I find most of Asia quite accommodating. But I've never been granted a hand inspection in Europe, even though a few people have reported otherwise. The most frustrating thing I found at CDG is that they would refuse a hand inspection every time, and then do it after my camera bag went through the X-ray because of all the camera gear in it. That being said, I've had film scanned (up to 1600) up to ten times, and have never had a problem.
Get a hand inspection when you can, but don't stress about it if you can't.
My favorite thing is to go where I've never been. D. Arbus
