Travelling with a Keilwerth tenor

I just came back from a four-week holiday to Australia. It was too long to be without a sax, so I decided to take mine along.

I packed my tenor Keilwerth in its original rectangular (styrofoam and nylon) case. Because of the case's size, I wasn't allowed to hand-carry it onto the plane. Instead, it went through normal baggage handling with a "fragile" sticker. I'm back now, and my sax seems to be okay, though I wouldn't do this again.

Next time I fly with my sax, I'll get a contoured case that I hopefully can carry into the plane's cabin. The original Keilwerth case looks too much like ordinary luggage for airline staff to consider it as anything else.

at least the case remains rectangular
