I know there are other threads about flying with cases but I thought I'd get really specific. I'm flying to Belgium in April so I purchased a Walt Johnson Tenor case for my VI tenor. Looks like we're flying United and Lufthansa Air?
I agree with Whaler, I'd pay to load early. You won't have trouble if you do that. If you load last, you will have trouble. I fly frequently and if you get the wrong person at the gate and board in group 9, then you will have a heck of a time.I use a Berkeley case I’ve had for years mostly because it’s the smallest case I’ve found and it doesn’t have that metal rim.
My advice is upgrade to board early before the civilians fill the overheads. Maybe limp or something if you’re cheap and don’t want to pay the extra 20 bucks.
Don’t ask anybody about anything. Just walk on with it.
