Yes you are correct Dry Ice should be labeled Dry Ice on the cooler and state the weight of the ice which you should estimate at 5.5 lbs... if you purchase the dry ice 2 days before your flight it will convert to a gas at 5 to 10 lbs per 24 hr period depending on the insulation of the container. I purchase 25lbs 2 days before travel I pack the cooler the night before so timing the arrival at check in so 5lbs will be left in the cooler when we arrive at the airport. This gives enough time to get to the boat and unpack the frozen food.
