Yes it is actually glass.
The TFT panel that drives the pixels is .7mm thick and since it has to be open on the back to the CCFL or LED light source, there is nothing that supports it in the middle when it is flat, only the edge is supported.
LCD sets have a top layer as well that is normally plastic that if the Color Filter. This is bonded to the TFT back panel and this can become delaminated from the glass as well if it is flexed.
Best advice is not to transport a PDP or LCD flat. Yes some people do it just fine, but it could very easily become a boat anchor by the time you get it home with just one bump. Borrow a vehicle that will allow you to do it right or pay them the fee for delivery.
