I work in the aerospace industry and have to work with this all the time. You can read this article, but the bottom line is that there is no permanent damage. Guys who spread FUD shouldn't be allowed to speak. 20,000 feet isn't a problem. You still have 1000:1 attenuation of gamma rays.

Do cell phones stop working? Do computers stop working? I designed a star tracking system using an off-the-shelf CCD for use in military aircraft. No problem.

If what he said happened actual happened if was due to an unpressurized and non-temperature controlled luggage area.
