Guitar World Article About Flying With Instruments
I know this topic comes up on a regular basis so I figured I would share this article from Guitar World which references the FAA Modernization and Reform Act of 2012. It clearly states that airlines must allow people to carry instruments on to a plane without charging an additional fee.
Here is the link to the law. Scroll down to section 403.
yeah but that is just for small instruments.
usually a bass in a hard case is too big.
besides, I don't really want to carry that thing around the airport anyway.
get a good case, wrap your bass in towels or t-shirts for extra cushion.
and if you have a super expensive bass, don't fly with it.
I have flown with my bass in a hard case many times, always as a carry on and have never had a problem.
