A trick I learned long ago, that I truly believe works, is to store bread, chips, bagels, etc in the microwave. I assume it's an air exchange thing.

That said, bagels wouldn't last a passage I don't think. Tortilla chips do reasonably well, if you roll the top over and clip it closed to reduce air exchange. My wife just crumples the top and it drives me crazy. Bring several smaller bags, so you can open them incrementally. The unopened will be unaffected.
