looks like you are the one who didnt read the post carefully. he does not own a bari-the selmer he plays belongs to the school. no i havnt flown with my bari except for flying home from boston after i bought my selmer mk6. i have flown for many flights playing tenor and had my first super 20 ruined by the airlines. there is only one safe way to fly with a bari and thats with a calzone type flight aproved road case and cross your fingers it dosnt get lost/stolen. i still feel its foolish to sighn a contract for a cruise ship gig with out having a horn to do so on. would you rather play your own axe rather than scramble to find a rental thats beat to heck and trust that its going to do the job? playing bari has its own set of hazzards besides just getting it to the gig. its large and so fragle. even on a cruise ship i would want a backup horn just in case
