@GayotFow you know you can do that? You click 'close' and choose 'unclear'. It doesn't require flagging for mods.

comment What is the average & max temperature of an airplane cargo hold?
From wiki it looks like the cooling system is indeed in the engine shafts, where cooling air bled from the compressor is used to cool the turbine blades.

comment What is the average & max temperature of an airplane cargo hold?
I'm pretty sure no cooling of the jets is done within the body of the plane - there's no radiator, as it's jet engines - works differently to a car engine. But I'm no expert, by any means. A good question for aviation.SE.

@nsn as a tip, you could keep your chocolates in the fridge until it's time to go. At least that way they'll be a few degrees less to start with, giving you that free extra chance of being safe. Just don't forget that they're in there! :)

comment What is the average & max temperature of an airplane cargo hold?
The engines are well away from the main body of the plane. Also remember at altitude, the engines might be hot, but the temperature around them and the plane can be -50 to -60C. The heat from the engines - at that distance from the body, will have very little effect on your chocolates, insulated inside a bag/suitcase, and likely surrounded by other insulated bags as well.
