In brief: NO O2 tank OK conc.

The faa does not allow travelers to carry their own oxygen tanks or liquid oxygen aboard commercial aircraft.
Instead, most patients can use a department of transportation approved battery-powered portable oxygen concentrator. Airlines landing in the United States are now required to allow use of these devices throughout the flight.
