If somebody is a US Resident, owns a Semi auto Glock. Has local Permit to carry a concealed weapon. What if this person wanted to fly with this hand gun internationally with him for his personal safety. The destination is Dhaka,Bangladesh and the layover is in Dubai and Kolkata, India. This page helps but does not provide all the information. Also, since I will be flying locally within the US to take the international flight, is it possible to fly in Delta (public airlines) with the gun ?

The answer at least as far as Delta is concerned is simple and is listed under Special Items Section of the baggage handling page it also refers to page from TSA on security regulations.
So it is as simple as declaring it and following the regulations listed
I've personally witnessed someone from a Hungarian shooting team transporting their rifle through JFK using Lufthansa. And basically the procedures where as listed above. They declared it. Made sure it was unloaded. Secured in the Gun case. Special form was filled out by TSA and the rifle was tagged and sent on its merry way.
The issue is that traveling to some destinations having a gun other then for the purpose of transport through a destination with an out of state license may be illegal like in the case of New York City.
