experinces with basses as carry on for air travel-help!


Recommended Posts

Usually when I tour it is by road.....although this time it is for two dates across the country and I must fly.

I play Lull's and there is no way I am going to lose a bass in baggage!

My guitarist has always carried on his Les Paul in a hardshell case no problem.......has anyone ever carried on a bass in a soft case?


Any help would be appreciated.

I've done it dozens of times with both basses in a double bag. So far I've had exactly one problem on a connecting flight in St Louis. Be charming and non combative with the flight crew - they do not have to let you carry it on. If it doesn't fit in the overhead it will fit in the closets by the exits.
