What is your experience? Carry-on? Checked bag? Which case? Grease the palms of the Airline workers? Give me the good, the bad and the ugly. Thanks.
I flew international business class - the bari went as checked baggage. You won't get it in the cabin unless you buy a seat for it.What is your experience? Carry-on? Checked bag? Which case? Grease the palms of the Airline workers? Give me the good, the bad and the ugly. Thanks.
This is how my band did it for their guitars/bass guitar. It worked.Flight Attendant here. See if you can’t inform the working crew of your situation and the horns value. They may be able to more easily sway the gate agent into allowing them to find a closet for it. .
This made me laugh!!!!Get a really tough case for the hold, then disguise it as a weak case by wrapping gaffer tape around various bits of it. If they think it might disintegrate, the luggage handlers won't chuck it quite as far. They don't want to have to sweep anything up!
I wonder if "Mr. Baritone" could be packed in a golf bag case such as this and shipped via "Ship Sticks"Here is a different option, if you want to roll your own!
I seem to remember reading that Howard Johnson does something similar to this.
