Where are you going?
If you're just going between states, there should be no problem whatsoever unless there's an explicit ban on plant transport for some reason. It's only between countries that it's a problem, usually.
Shipping is an option, but, if not, they should be easy to take on the plane. Definitely dump the liquid out of the pitcher plants, and see if you can tape some paper towels over the soil around them to help keep things inside. Water them thoroughly, then get a couple of cups or glasses, tape the cups upside-down over the pots, and place them in an un-sealed bag to catch any water drips. They'll be fine in your carry-on. The X-ray of the bag won't hurt them, and the airport screeners won't care. You can't hijack a plane with plants.
