IMO: if you have luggage/bags that you are checking, including your hookah with those bags would be optimal. you wouldn't have to deal with TSA screeners pitching a fit about it...
If nothing else you could just find a hookah bar where ever you're going ahead of time. that would save you some weight and some worry about breaking your hookah.
